Tip: How To Bring Up The Memory Browser In Xcode 4

The memory browser tool was something that I got a lot of mileage out of in Xcode 3.

When I first started using Xcode 4 I didn’t find the memory tool right away – and simply forgot about it’s existence.

While browsing through tweeted iOS Stack Overflow threads I came across this nice tip on how to use the memory manager (yes, I found something useful on Stack Overflow!).

Here’s the tip:

Select Product > Debug > View Memory while debugging or press Shift-Cmd-M. This will display the memory browser and add an entry for ‘Memory’ into the Debug navigator:

You can also right-click on a variable in the Debug panel and select View Memory of “*<variable name>” to jump straight to displaying memory for that variable.

You can find more Xcode 4 tips on the Xcode 4 tutorial page.
