The expression evaluator, which is the brains behind the Watch, Autos, This, Quick Watch, Immediate, and Locals windows, lets you see your variables and types in forms you can understand. It’s one of the most powerful features of Visual Studio and supports all sorts of useful tricks. In this session, you’ll learn how to get the most out of the expression evaluator so you spend less time debugging. The expression evaluator is also the key to helping you test in the debugger to drive your code coverage and testing to the levels necessary to have confidence in your code. So get ready to take your debugging to the next level!
