I have a debugging issue with avr studio 4.18 i am unable to watch most variables they say they are not in scope even when they are as the picture shows. so to debug i am forced to use another IDE(visual studio) to debug but use avr studio to monitor ports. attached is also a picture showing that visual studio can watch the variable but avr studio cant. also below is a snipt of the code. does anyone know what the problem is? im using atmega16 thanks

	for(loop = INITALLY_ZERO; ((loop < MAX_PINS) && found == NO);loop++)		// search for the discrete that is to be retreived
	{
		
		if(discrete->ID == pin_to_retreive)		// pin id should be just the enum type or pin number
		{

			found = YES;			// exit loop when the correct pin is set
		} 
		discrete++;		// goto next discrete to set
		
	}	
		return downBtn;	
}

i just read it. I tried changing the optimization level to OFF and cleaned and made the files but that didnt seem to work here is the makefile im using.

OK then if you breakpoint on that line are you saying you cannot watch *discrete even built -O0 ? Can you post the smallest test program that demonstrates this?

But you cannot watch ID alone (it's a member of a typedef presumably?) It's "discrete->ID" you should try watching. Perhaps start with simply *discrete.

I think its working i guess if you cant monitor specific elements you have to add the structure variable to the watch list. discrete->ID gives Not in scope but discrete works u just have to find id in the list.. pic attached thanks for the help.
