dotTrace Web Help

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 box.

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 on the context menu.
    • Press Ctrl+Q.
  3. The Properties dialog box opens:
    Reference__Dialog_Boxes__Properties__All_Calls
  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 Studying_Profiling_Results__Adding_Annotations__Annotation icon in all views, except Overview.

Move the mouse pointer over the Studying_Profiling_Results__Adding_Annotations__Annotation icon to display the annotation in a tooltip.
Studying_Profiling_Results__Adding_Annotations__Tooltip
In the Overview view, you can look through the list of all annotated functions.
