I think one of the finest feature in visual studio 2005 is the debugger visualizer.
What? You don't know what this is? Well, visualizers are Visual Studio debugger user interface components which allow to display a variable or object in a meaningful way that is appropriate to its data type. The standard visualizers are Html, Text and Xml for any string object and the DataSet visualizer for DataSets, DataViews and DataTables.
Today i was in a situation where i missing an image visualizer. So i had to write my own and what shall i say ... its so easy. And now, for all people out there who don't have the will or the time to implement its own visualizer here are the good news: you can use my one
Just copy this dll either in
Install path\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Packages\Debugger\Visualizers
My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Visualizers
Then restart the debug process and have fun.
The result should be like in the picture above. Just choose my visualizer and you will see the image in a new window. There, if you double click on the image its size mode will switch between stretch and normal. Nothing special but it works.
bye .. and feel free to "reflector it"
