Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Explore info with data visualizers, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 06 Debug and Troubleshoot Code.
- When you are debugging, you need to see…the information stored in variables…and other objects in your code.…Data Tips and Data Visualizers are provided…by Visual Studio to show you this information.…In this video, I'll look at the Data Visualizer,…also known as the Debug Visualizer,…which provides debug time formatting…of large text files, HTML, XML or JSON data.…I'll start by opening this C# file,…and then debugging my application.…Now, I'll press F11 to step through my code,…until I get near the bottom of this method.…
What I've done is filled six strings with information.…Now if you looked at the other video, about Data Tips,…you know that I can hover over the word sentence here,…and see the contents of this string.…Now this works really well for a short string,…but imagine I had 600 words inside this sentence.…Now, when I hover over it with the Data Tip,…it wouldn't all fit in the Data Tip.…Also, when I'm working with things like this HTML file,…I have these HTML tags inside my string.…It'd be nice to be able to look at this string,…
