: I need a day or two to find some time for some code documentation ;).Installation
To 'use' this visualizer, you must install the .dll in the appropriate directory for Visual Studio (restart Visual Studio if it's running):Visual Studio 2008
: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Packages\Debugger\VisualizersInstructions
To activate the visualizer, click on the small magnifying glass that appears beside any DependencyObject (or derived object) in your Locals window, etc. For example, Window1 in the typical WPF project derives from DependencyObject, and so you will see the small magnifying glass beside it when it is in the Locals window (it may be called 'this' if your breakpoint is in Window1.xaml.cs).
You can also activate the visualizer while debugging by hovering over any DependencyObject derived object in your code and clicking on the small magnifying glass that appears there.
