Using the Immediate window
Using the Immediate window.
When to use
The Immediate window allows you to change values at runtime and question the state of a variable.
Opening the Immediate Window
- Go to the View menu on the main toolbar and select Immediate window
- Alternately you can press CTRL + G
Using the Immediate window directly
- Query anything by typing a question mark (?) followed by code pointing to an object or variables properties
- Execute a method by typing it directly into the window and pressing Enter
Writing values to the Immediate window at run time
- Insert a Debug.Print command in the code and the output will display in the Immediate window.
- Debug.Print commands can be left in the code once the routine is ready to use, but it will take extra time for them to be calculated.
- If a Debug command is left in the code, you can add a single quote (‘) at the beginning to prevent it from executing.
