In this screencast Thom take a look at a new feature within debugging using Visual Studio 2005 called visualizers. Debugging is just one of those necessary evils that we just can’t seem to escape. The Visual Studio debugger has always provided some great features to help solve this problem. However, the debugger always has been limited to a text only hierarchy view of application code. Which wasn’t a problem for some things but objects, for example, a dataset could be a challenge to debug. Visual Studio 2005 introduces a new concept called visualizers that are designed to solve this problem. Debugger visualizers enable advanced, customized data display while you are running your applications with the Visual Studio Debugger.
