Description Alan McGovern 2012-04-12 11:21:28 UTC
1) Debug code like the following:

var xx = GetFoo ();
console.Writeline (xx.ToString ());

if you hover the mouse on the declaration of 'xx' in the first line, you do not get the debugger tooltip showing the value of 'xx', you get displayed a regular code completion tooltip.

If you hover over the usage of 'xx' in the Console.WriteLine, the debugger tooltip displays and i can see if xx is null, or if it is not i can see the values of its fields.

See screencast if that description is confusing: http://screencast.com/t/ldrI0UqyHQ7
