Visual Studio 2008 : How to add Visualizer for LINQ

There are two very important visualizers for LINQ which are not part of default installation.

 

The visualizers are

Ø       ExpressionTree Visualizer

Ø       SqlServerQuery Visualizer  

 

Both the visualizers are available from

 

Visual Basic

Samples for Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2

 

Visual C#

LINQ and language samples for Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2

 

Once you install them you will find the ExpressionTree Visualizer and SqlServerQuery Visualizer under

 

..My Documents\Visual Studio Samples\LinqSamples\

ExpressionTreeVisualizer\ExpressionTreeVisualizer

 

..My Documents\Visual Studio Samples\LinqSamples

\QueryVisualizer\SqlServerQueryVisualizer

 

If you open the *.proj from these two folders and compile them you will get two dlls

Ø       ExpressionTreeVisualizer.dll

Ø       LinqToSqlQueryVisualizer.dll

 

Under bin\debug or bin\release folder depending on the type of build you select. Now copy both the dlls and drop them to the folder located under My Documents

 

..My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Visualizers

 

Once it is there, and you are in the debug mode inside your visual studio 2008 these two options will come respectively.
