Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-23 20:07:30 UTC
The debugger hangs the MD UI when drilling down into the base type when debugging a M4A app on simulator. It appears to be blocking the UI when retrieving type information.

There's definitely some lag, but it's not too bad. Takes ~1/2 second or so to expand "base" for objects of type Button, for example.

Ideally we wouldn't block the UI at all and have some sort of asynchronous query to the debugger, but this'll take a lot of work which probably isn't worth spending time on until we get other more important issues out of the way.

Today, We have checked this issue with following builds:

Win 7  and 8
MFA 4.7.10024
XS 4.0.9

Now, We are able to expand the debugger values and XS is not gets hang. 

Here is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/XVmPGy6b

Hence marking this as Verified Fixed.
