Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
When using the debugger, hovering on a variable in the source code usually brings up a small window which permits one to browse the value of the variable in question (object inspection may not be the correct term). This appears to be broken in the 2.6 RC 1 release. Sometimes it works, but more often than not it fails to do anything.
Please provide a test case so we can look at what the problem is, it might be a problem in parsing a particular kind of source.
I cannot provide the source I am using, and would be hard pressed to guess at what part of my objects are leading to the problem. Is there possibly a log file that I can inspect for error messages / warnings?
Is this still happening for you?
If you could test with MonoDevelop 2.8.5 which will be released in the next few days, that would be great. I've fixed around 25 debugger bugs in the past 2 weeks for this release and some of them were similar to this, but without a test case I can't be sure.
