How to get string "\r\n" converted to real CR LF while in debug mode?

I'm using Visual Studio C#. For readability, I often build strings which contain ... \r \n \t \" ... for things like dynamic JavaScripts, dynamic TSQL, dynamic street address blocks, etc. But when I'm programming, I sometimes want to stop in debug mode, look at the IDE's LOCALS or AUTO tab and "see" what the final string looks like. Unfortunately, the string is shown with \r\n or \t.

Does anyone know an IDE "TRICK" for gettting a fully rendered string with ALL replacements complete ... while stopped in debug mode?

Thanks
Frederick

There's a very easy way actually.

Use the Immediate window of VS.NET (Ctrl+Alt+I), and then just use some code lines:

Console.WriteLine( someString )
System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine( someString )
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show( someString )
