Local variables

Local variables of the current frame (the current function in which the program control is present) are displayed in the Locals window. During execution of the program (e.g. during single stepping), local variables will be updated. If any variable value was changed in the last debugging step, its value will be highlighted in red. Variables are presented in a tree form for easy view.
