glom visual studio class/struct browser for printing and/or logging
Posted on 2009-02-12
If you have used Visual Studio, you know it has a rather nice browse capability to browse through data members of classes. What I'd like to do is to call some routine that generates the fully expanded data members and values in text form, and send that output to a log file, for study and or diff with previous runs.
Of course, the solution would be MS only and debug only, but it would be a very quick/easy way to record a big hairy data structure before making code changes that are supposed to change the data strucuture in just a few places (or not at all).
Select-all/copy then paste into another document is close to what I want, but the data structure I'm dealing with is very deep and broad, and I don't want to have to expand each item in the tree view by hand.
