Timeline in Visual Studio with smart tooltips 2016.1
Before dotTrace 2016.1, the main drawback of the integrated viewer compared to its standalone
counterpart was the absence of the Threads diagram. Now, the
integrated viewer gets exactly the same diagram, which you can use to select threads, time
range, and of course, view thread activity and filtered time intervals.
In addition, Threads diagram in both standalone and
Visual Studio viewer gets smart tooltips. Hold the mouse over a specific time point on the
to display a tooltip showing the current thread state, executed method, and more useful
Tooltips are context-sensitive. This means that if some filter is applied, the tooltip will
contain additional data on the filtered event. For example, when the
File I/O filter is selected, the tooltip additionally
shows info about file operation, file name, and data size.
