Description Marius Ungureanu 2015-07-27 05:06:40 UTC
I manually paused an app by clicking the pause button in the debugger toolbar (this is windows).

Then, I tried inputting:
> new DateTime (DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month, DateTime.Now.Day)

Got the following result:
> The expression can't be evaluated while the application is running.

I'd have expected the expression to be evaluated.
Comment 1 David Karlaš 2015-07-29 02:04:26 UTC
Problem here is that none of threads has stack frame which could be used for performing evaluation... And wrong message here: https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/blob/fbbcf655c40d0e3157771dc137887b1b70d793bf/main/src/addins/MonoDevelop.Debugger/MonoDevelop.Debugger/ImmediatePad.cs#L64

I will try to come up with some better solution then just better message.
