Description Marek Safar 2011-09-01 09:14:10 UTC
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace N.M.O.P
	enum E
		V =2

	[DebuggerDisplay ("A = {prop}")]
	class C
		public E prop {
			get {
				return E.V;
		public static void Main ()
			var v = new C ();
			return;  // Break here and hover over v

MD does not display same value for prop used in DebuggerDisplay and in normal watch window (N.M.O.P.E.V instead of V)
