WindowsIdentity Debugger Visualizer for Visual Studio 2005

Posted by Gaurav Khanna on October 9, 2005

I just finished implementing WIVisualizer, a WindowsIdentity debugger visualizer for Visual Studio 2005. It displays important details like:

  • Username
  • Authentication type
  • Impersonation Level
  • Account type – System or Guest
  • Anonymous or Authenticated identity
  • Windows groups the identity is member of

Here’s a screen-shot for the same:

Download from here. To install, simply copy the DLL file to <Visual Studio 2005 Installation Folder>\Common7\Packages\Debugger\Visualizers folder.

Image Visualizer for VS 2005 Beta 2

Posted by Gaurav Khanna on September 25, 2005

I am currently on the Technology Roadshow across 6 six cities in India, where I am talking about Building performant applications and Debugging Techniques for .NET Framework 2.0.

One of the things the developers here are amazed at are the DataTips that have been introduced with VS 2005, and also with Visualizers. Infact, when I demonstrate the DataSet Visualizer that ships with VS 2005, you can hear the WOW! of the audience 🙂

In the same session, we then go about building a visualizer for the Image class. For those interested, you can download the VS 2005 Beta 2 source code for the same from http://www.wintoolzone.com/showpage.aspx?url=dotnet.aspx.

To activate the visualizer, build the DLL assembly and copy it to <ProgramFiles Folder comes here>\<VisualStudio Installation Folder comes here>\Common7\Packages\Debugger\Visualizers folder
