Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2013-09-24 19:54:35 UTC

Can you please add support to easily view the contents of a DataTable or DataView inside the Xamarin debugger? I believe this is really important when developing on C#.

If you want custom display of a particular class, you need to set a DebuggerDisplayAttribute on that class or implement a DebuggerTypeProxyAttribute for that class.

a) those are BCL classes, users can't add attributes to them
b) debugger visualizers are not the same as type proxies and display attributes

VS has built in ones for these classes, see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/farukcelik/archive/2009/11/24/where-s-my-good-old-friend-dataset-visualizer.aspx
