    3. it also allow you to modify the value and enter new value

    4. If the variable is an array or an object, a tree control appears next to the name in the Name box. In the Name column, expand the variable, if necessary, to find the element whose value that you want to edit.

    5. In the row you want to change, double-click the Value column.

    6. Type the new value.
