ReSharper streamlines your debugging experience in C#, VB.NET, and C++ with inline debugging adornments and searchable DataTips, and also brings a number of breakpoint navigation features to all supported languages. On top of that, ReSharper helps you debug any external modules, even those that do not have debug information.
When you suspend execution while debugging your code, you can see values of local
variables, current line expressions, and function returns right in the editor,
next to the corresponding code lines.
ReSharper understands the
which means that values of types, properties, and fields marked with this attribute
will be displayed accordingly in the editor adornments.
ReSharper provides an improved replacement for Visual Studio DataTips:
ToString()override nor is it annotated with the
[DebuggerDisplayAttribute], the presentation of objects of this type in debugger views could be quite uninformative. In ReSharper DataTips, you can customize presentation of such objects on-the-fly.
With ReSharper, you can quickly jump to any breakpoint/tracepoint in your solution with
Ctrl+Alt+F9 (ReSharper | Navigate | Breakpoints).
In the list that initially includes all breakpoints in your solution, you can start typing to filter the results by context and then navigate directly to the desired breakpoint.
You can also press Delete right in the list to remove breakpoints.
ReSharper brings its own R# Breakpoints window, which you can use as an alternative to the native Visual Studio window. In ReSharper's window, you can:
You can also see, toggle, and enable/disable breakpoints in the Find Results window, which is quite handy — for example, you can quickly set breakpoints for all the occurrences of a symbol that you are going to debug.
With ReSharper, you can debug any compiled module, even if it does not have debug information (PDB). ReSharper will decompile the module, generate PDB for it, and automatically load decompiled symbols for this module into the Visual Studio debugger.
All keyboard shortcuts provided in this page are available in ReSharper's default "Visual Studio" keymap. For details on ReSharper's two keymaps, see ReSharper Documentation.
