Source View

The Source View window is used to view the source code of the profiled application. After you select a method in Call Tree, Source View will automatically locate its underlying source code. To make the source code visible, let Timeline Viewer know where .pdb files for your project are located, or specify path to the source code.

To open the Source View window:

  • Select the menu item View | Source View.

If you need to debug your code at a low level or for some other reason examine the code emitted by the compiler, you can do it right in Source View.

To view IL code:

  1. Select a method in Call Tree.
  2. Open Source View.
  3. Turn on the Show IL Code checkbox in Source View.

IL code will be displayed under each code statement.

Sometimes source code is not available, however Source View can recreate source code close to original using a built-in decompiler.

To view decompiled code:

  1. Select a method in Call Tree.
  2. Open Source View.
  3. Click Decompiled Source in Source View.
  4. In order to enable code decompiling, do one of the following:
    • Select the I accept the terms of the license agreement, allow to decompile check box and click Apply.
    • On the menu bar, choose View | Options. The Options dialog opens. Select the Decompiler node on the left pane. Select the I accept the terms of the license agreement, allow to decompile checkbox in the right pane, then click Save to apply changes.
  5. The corresponding decompiled code will be displayed.
