Description

In this video, we take a look at two new improvements coming in Visual Studio "15" for debugging exceptions in your code. First we see the new Exception Helper that shows you a compact, non-modal view of exception information, including instant access to the inner exception. Then we add conditions to exceptions, so that the debugger will only break when exceptions are thrown in modules you care about.

      Conditional exceptions and a non-modal exception display? Now all I want to know is how you got into my brain. This will be a life-saver for when I don't want to skip *every* NullReferenceException, just the ones thrown for boneheaded reasons by libraries. :)
