irc log

I've integrated my language into Xmarain Studio and I'm looking to do the same with your debugger in the android Visual Studio integration. Poking around it looks like any 3rd party language would need something similar to MonoDevelop.Debugger.DebuggingService in your android Visual Studio integration. More specifically I'm looking to get 'Session' and the static events so that i can hook up my ExpressionEvaluator inside the DebugSession instance.

static public event EventHandler DebugSessionStarted;
static public event EventHandler PausedEvent;
static public event EventHandler ResumedEvent;
static public event EventHandler StoppedEvent;

I was talking to Jeffrey Stedfast in #MonoDevelop and he suggested I attach the IRC log when I send in this enhancement request.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your suggestion. Right now, supporting extensibility of XamarinVS is not on our roadmap.
