Description Alan McGovern 2012-06-27 16:38:45 UTC
public class Foo
    public virtual int Test { get { return 5; }}

public class Bar
    public override int Test { get { return 10; } }

    public void SomeMethod ()
        Console.WriteLine (base.Test);

If a breakpoint is set in 'SomeMethod' and you view the value of 'base.Test' in the debugger, the tooltip will contain the value '10' instead of the value '5'.

fixed in git master
Comment 2 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-07-26 12:09:21 UTC
patch for this also fixes bug #6251 (because of ValueReference.GetChild passing its type to Adaptor.GetMember() instead of having GetMember() query the actual type of the object)
