View an Android App's shared preferences?

When I am working on my app in eclipse, is there a way to see the changes I make to the shared preferences of the app while it is debugging in the emulator? Thanks in advance

    Run project in emulator, then from Eclipse choose menu Windows-> open perspective ->DDMS.
    From tab device, choose emulator name, then go to file explorer,expand data->data->yourpackagename, you should see share reference xml file (only work on the emulator or a rooted device). Finally, export this file to windows.

    Another way, you can listen shared preference change:

    SharedPreferences.OnSharedPreferenceChangeListener prefListener = 
    new SharedPreferences.OnSharedPreferenceChangeListener() {
      public void onSharedPreferenceChanged(SharedPreferences prefs,String key) {
    if (key.equals("YourKey")) 
              //Get this
    SharedPreferences preferences = PreferenceManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences(context);          

    See SharedPreferences.onSharedPreferenceChangeListener not being called consistently

    Running on emulator –> Go to file explorer –> data/data/yourapplication’s package/Sharedpreferences.xml can be seen
