  • Blog Post: More TechEd 2005 C# Team Content: DEV340 and DEV341

    Two powerpoint files have been posted. The first is the slides for DEV340 , a session about the enhancements to Visual C# in version 2.0. The second PPT contains the slides for DEV341 , which covers the new C# IDE features in Visual Studio 2005. Unfortunately DEV341 is almost all demos, so the slides...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Content: DEV370 (with Mystery Visualizer)

    Well, here's the session I did at TechEd. As a refresher, the session title is "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005: Debugging Smart Client Applications with Visual Studio 2005." This complete package has the PPT, the solution and a demo script. Check out the included Mystery Visualizer! The PPT is all flashy...
  • Blog Post: Debugger Visualizer: Advanced Dataset Visualizer

    This is the most advanced visualizer I've seen so far. And it's also the first restricted visualizer I've seen: it has an expiration date, and no source code to help you build your own for this one... With that preface out of the way, let's talk about the visualizer. This is an industrial-strength...
  • Blog Post: New Visual Studio 2005 Feature: User-unhandled Exceptions

    I recently responded to this "bug" on the MSDN Product Feedback Center , but I thought it would be valuable for more people than just "SecurityException" to get this explanation. The situation is this - Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 stopped the debuggee and showed an exception dialog when an exception was...

  • Blog Post: Can't Wait? Debugger Visualization on VS 2003

    Can't wait for Visual Studio 2005 to get some rich data visualization while debugging? If you haven't already seen these, check 'em out. I admit that I haven't tried them myself, but people appear to be using them... XML Visualizer - supports lots of data types Special Dataset Quickwatch - conquers...
  • Blog Post: Debugger Visualizer: ASP.NET Cache

    This was one of the scenarios we brainstormed (how would people use it?) while developing Debugger Visualizers. The ASP.NET cache - a very difficult bit of memory to try and understand. It would be fair to say that it's even more difficult than the dreaded dataset. Well, Brett Johnson has done it...
  • Blog Post: I'll be speaking at TechEd 2005 in Orlando

    Just added a snazzy blue TechEd image to my sidebar, so I should probably mention that I'll be in Orlando in June to talk about Debugging Smart Client applications. DEV370 Microsoft Visual Studio 2005: Debugging Smart Client Applications with Visual Studio 2005 Speaker(s): Scott Nonnenberg ...
  • Blog Post: Debugger Visualizer MSDN Article Update and Webcast

    The Beta 2 update to my MSDN article on debugger visualizers was published last week! It's even headlined on the C# and .NET Framework developer centers! :0) There's a webcast on visualizers tomorrow morning. I'm not giving it, but I am signed up!
  • Blog Post: Debugger Visualizer Target Confusion

    I've seen this idea a few places now: "Each implementation of a DebuggerVisualizer can be associated with only one type." "Debugger visualizers for different classes must reside in a separate project." And I'm really not sure what to make of it. What we call a " debugger visualizer " is a loose...
  • Blog Post: Crashdump support update

    I posted in January about a proposed cut of crashdump ( windbg : ".dump /f", now superseded by minidumps) support in Visual Studio 2005. Thanks to everyone who commented - I'm sure you'd like to hear the results... drumroll please... We cut it. Hopefully you won't be hit too hard by this. Fortunately...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio's Quick Console

    [Update: this feature was cut in the final version of Visual Studio. It's a great idea we may revisit in the future, but our implementation for VS2005 was bad. It caused hangs for some of our users and very confusing error messages for many others .] I've asked for feedback regarding this new-for...
  • Blog Post: Debugger Visualizer: ASP.NET Controls

    I've received a second response to my call for Debugger Visualizers . And I must say, folks, that this is one sweet visualizer. Brett Johnson 's ASP.NET Control Visualizer is a perfect example of what visualizers can add to your debugging experience. What does it do, you ask? As you debug through...
  • Blog Post: Debugger Visualizer: String Encodings

    The first response to my request for debugger visualizers is from Daniel Moth . His little String Encoding Visualizer is great for anyone dealing with string encodings. It could easily become an absolutely essential tool for this kind of development. I should mention that Daniel's visualizer is based...
  • Blog Post: Beta 2 and Debugger Visualizers

    Howard Van Rooijen recently emailed me about the XML Debugger Visualizer he's developing, wondering about upcoming changes to the API in Beta2. First let's talk about Howard's visualizer. It looks quite flashy and cool - at least check out the screenshots in his post about it . The cool thing about...

  • Blog Post: Some Responses to Debugging Requests

    Philip Schlump posted the below requests in response to Eric's post soliciting feedback on “Future language features & scenarios.“ I thought I'd respond here. 1) Q: A debugging runtime that allows un-running of code. At each instruction in the code there is a “state” that...
