Displaying values as tooltip in debugger
Posted on 2014-04-25
I'm using VS 2008, Visual Basic. When I'm in debug mode, if I hover the mouse over a variable, the variable's value displays in a tooltip box. However, that doesn't happen if the variable is qualified with a dot, whether to call a property (ThisForm.Width) or to execute a method (ThisDate.AddDays(1)). I can right-click on the variable and choose Add Watch, which displays the value in the Watch window, but that's tedious and quickly builds up a large list of variables to display.
Is there any way to get the tooltip display to work for variables with dots and members after the name?
