QuestionC++ Structure layouts - how to determine padding and what not - VS2008 but it's a general question Pin

Maybe there is a setting for this or a utility or what not. I've been tracking down a buffer overrun and loss of data for a few days, and I have discovered that a data structure pretty clearly defined is blowing past it's size. I think it's due to silly datatype selection and not understanding padding.

I'm working in VS2008 (no choice), and I've yet to find something to help me understand the exact byte layout of a structure. I really need to see the padding being added. The fact that I have a mix of unsigned ints, bools and bytebools can be attributed to ignorance and just poor programming.

This seems to me something any IDE should be able to show me, but if you recall, Microsoft just broke help in VS2008. I was thinking the map file, but I'm not seeing it. What I would like to be able to do is to add a watch to the data structure. In the watch window, I want to see the addresses of each item in the structure by expanding it. But I think I'm going to have to do a lot of typing.

Appreciate any pointers.

Long weekend ahead.
