Data tip is kind of an advanced tool tip message which is used to inspect the objects or variable during the debugging of the application. When debugger hits the breakpoint, if you mouse over to any of the objects or variables, you can see their current values. Even you can get the details of some complex object like
datatable, etc. There is a “+” sign associated with the dataTip which is used to expand its child objects or variables.
Visual Studio allow US to import and export pinned data tips which can used in future point of time. Data Tips are saved on a XML file.
These saved data tips can be imported during any point of time for further debugging. The XML file looks like below:
This features really helpful to share data tips among different developers.
