Adding Annotations

During performance analysis, you may want to leave a comment about a specific function or its behavior. dotTrace lets you add annotations to functions using the Properties dialog.

To add an annotation for a function

  1. Select a function in a view.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the menu bar, choose View | Properties.
    • Right-click the function, then click Properties in the context menu.
    • Press Ctrl+Q.
  3. The Properties dialog opens:
    /help/img/dotnet/2017.1/Annotations_1.png
  4. Enter your comment in the Annotation text box.

As soon as you click OK, your annotation is saved and the function is marked with the /help/img/dotnet/2017.1/Studying_Profiling_Results__Adding_Annotations__Annotation.png icon in all views, except Overview.

/help/img/dotnet/2017.1/Annotations_2.png

In the Overview view, you can look through the list of all annotated functions.
