[VB]Displaying Arrays In DebuggerDisplayAttribute RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have started using the DebuggerDisplayAttribute for some of my classes. My classes often include (just like those of many other people) arrays. However, I have not found a way to display arrays (all the values in the array as a string, such as {0,1,2,3,4}) with the DebuggerDisplayAttribute. I know that I could just override the ToString() method, but this is not always appropriate if I want that for something else. Is there an easy way to display an array with DebuggerDisplayAttribute?

  • Perhaps something like this?
    <DebuggerDisplay("Array = {String.Join("", "", Array)}")>

    With kind regards

  • Hi Nathan Sokalski,

    Sorry for delay in reply.

    For your requirement, you could use "Values" which is a property of "DebuggerDisplay" to display the array. Please refer more this thread (though it is based on C#):

    And you could learn more about properties here: DebuggerDisplayAttribute Class

    Best Regards,
