Hi,
IntelliJ has a very useful feature called Inline Values View:
https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/inline-debugging.html
ReSharper has already implemented this for Visual Studio:
https://blog.jetbrains.com/dotnet/2017/11/21/resharper-2017-3-brings-debugger-editor/
There is also the Entrian Inline Watch plugin, which is different in appearance but similar:

Would Visual Assist comsidering adding this feature?
Thanks,
Patrick

Are you aware of a similar Visual Studio feature? It's not quite the same but you may still find interesting or useful. If you hover over a variable that you are interested about, you can pin it down and it will look like this:

Hi accord,
yes I am familiar with that feature but all the examples listed above automatically provide per line inline variable values. This is the equivalent of the existing Visual Studio feature without having to pin every value in every method you debug through. The alternatives are far superior and since ReSharper has it then I am wondering if Visual Assist will do something comparable. If done right, it could be a great benefit to debugging.
Thanks,
Patrick

I second this request. It would be awesome if VA supported this.
