DataSet Visualizer for Visual Studio 2003
Debugging DataSets in Visual Studio just got easier. Whiel something like this will most likely be available out of the box with Visual Studio 2005, current users of Visual Studio 2003 have no easy way of figuring out what exactly is in a DataSet while debugging their code. Sure, you can expand all of the little branches in the watch window, but what fun is that? Wouldn’t it be cooler if you had something like a context menu item which creates a window containing your DataSet?
Yeah, I think so to. That’s why I’m going to be using this tool all the time while debugging code that uses a DataSet.
The only downside that I can see with this tool is that it only supports DataSets, not DataTables. Although that probably wouldn’t be hard to add, since the code is available in addition to the compiled binary.
