While debugging, you can look at variable values in the watch windows.

When you right click in the window, you can select "Hexadecimal Display" to display integer values in hexadecimal.

This works ok while debugging test projects or windows projects.

But when debugging xamarin projects (ios or android) it does not. The values are still displayed in decimal, not hexadecimal.

We have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2013 / 2012
X.Android 4.11.00210

We are also getting same issue as mentioned in bug description i.e getting integer value in watch window when hexadecimal is enable while debugging.

It should show the value in hexadecimal instead of integer when hexadecimal is enable.
