“Why is this value changing unexpectedly and where or when is this occurring?!” This is a question many of us dread asking ourselves, knowing that we'll have to do some tedious trial-and-error debugging attempting to locate the source of this issue. For C++ developers, the exclusive solution to this problem has been the data breakpoint, a debugging tool that allows you to break when a specific object’s property changes. Fortunately, data breakpoints are no longer a C++ exclusive because they are now available for .NET Core (3.0 or higher) in Visual Studio 2019 Preview 2!
We are excited to announce that in Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 we are expanding Snapshot Debugger support beyond Azure App Services hosting ASP.NET Core and ASP.NET applications to also include Azure Virtual Machines (VM), Azure Virtual Machine scale sets (VMSS) and Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS).
Are you inspecting many variables at once in the Locals window? Tired of constantly scrolling through the Watch window to locate the object you are currently interested in?
