Simplify, simplified!

We’ve just released a new update of OzCode, which includes a multitude of bug fixes, and also:

Keyboard Shortcut Galore

‘Simplify’ now lets you use the debugger to inspect variables and method return values comfortably without constantly dragging the mouse to hover over the variables (or glimpsing at the Autos/Watch window).

As you Step Over code, hit Alt+J to start viewing the values. Once the Simplify visualization appears, use Alt+J to go one level down, Alt+K to go one level up through the visualization. If you’re looking at a long expression that spans several lines of code, hit Alt+Shift+J to go one line downwards, and Alt+Shift+K to go one line upwards.

Check out this video and start practicing the new keyboard shortcuts!

Furthermore, as you can see in the video, Simplify annotations now automagically expand the code slightly to let you see the full value of the expression.

We Just Phoned This In

OzCode now supported debugging Windows Phone 8.1 apps! We’ve added Simplify support when debugging both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.0, you’ll just need to install Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 to see it!

As usual, we’re eager to hear what you think about new updates!


Magical Debugging,
