Tips and Tricks: How to configure an array monitoring range

Last week Andrew Patten posted an excellent trick in the TwinCAT forum which I was unaware of. So I thought it would be a good idea to share it here as well:

In the online view of  TwinCAT and CodeSys the range of monitored array member can be limited by double clicking the type cell of the array you want to limit. This can be an useful function when working with big arrays and you only want to focus on a specific part during debugging.

In this screenshot I limited the online view of an array [0..9] to 3 to 6.

Do you know any more little known tips and tricks in TwinCAT or CodeSys? Let me know!
