The UI Debugging tools for XAML represent the first new tools designed to diagnose Design and Layout issues in XAML apps. The Live Visual Tree and Live Property Explorer work together to inspect the visual tree of a running Universal Windows app or WPF application and allow for runtime editing of properties. This video gives an introduction into how to enable the tools, work with them and understand their value.

    Where can I enable the Live Visual Tree & Live Property Explorer?

    These tools look awesome! Unfortunately the Live Visual Tree causes an exception to be thrown in our WPF application when we try to use it. I used the "Send a Frown" feature in VS to report it, but is there another place that would be better for reporting this bug?
