Description James Clancey 2017-01-13 23:59:43 UTC
Inspector does not support the following things

>  items.FirstOrDefault(x=> x.Id.Contains("foo"))
>  items.Where(x=> x.Id.Contains("foo"))

You will always get:

Expression not supported.

Sometimes while debugging you want to search through a collection. And recompiling and hoping to get back into the same state is really not nice.

Sorry immediate window, not inspector

Same situation with Visual Studio.
