Mole 2010 v1.3 contains a lot of enhancements made in response to customer feedback. This ranges from simple bug fixes to making existing features more powerful. Developers leveraging Prism will be happy to find enhanced support for exploring objects from the Prism and Unity frameworks. Several fixes will make our large user base in Germany quite happy, including the ability to use a list separator, other than a comma, in exported CSV files.

For a full overview of what v1.3 has to offer, please check out the following list of enhancements.

  • Fixed bug where Mole would not close properly when computer has a touch-enabled screen (worked around a WPF issue).
  • Enabled viewing and drilling into more collection types. Mole 2010 now supports drilling into any IEnumerable object.
  • Both the Key and Value properties of a DictionaryEntry object are now shown in the MoloScope’s Value column.
  • Collection items for NameValueCollection now show the keys and values in the MoloScope.
  • Improved support for working with Prism and Unity applications (support for drilling into the RegionManager and Unity container collections).
  • Enabled drilling into objects with only non-public fields.
  • Exporting collection data to CSV now uses the list separator defined by your system locale, instead of always using a comma.
  • The Options dialog allows you to specify a list separator to use in the CSV files, if necessary.
  • MoloScope column widths are no longer set to incorrect large values when running on a system with the German locale.
  • Snapshot rendering of Windows Forms controls has been modified to properly handle some edge cases.

Mole 2010 v1.2 includes a great new feature called “Snapshot Inspector” that allows WPF and Windows Forms developers to locate UI controls by dragging the mouse over the snapshot image of the user interface.

While you move the cursor over the image, it shows a highlight rectangle around the UI control currently under the cursor. If you let go of the left mouse button while the cursor is over an element, that element will be selected in the Element Tree pane.

Mole 2010 v1.2 can now be opened for generic collections, such as List<T>, ObservableCollection<T>, and Dictionary<K,V>.

The new version also includes several minor bug fixes.

Mole 2010 in F# Interactive

Josh Smith, co-founder of Molosoft, posted on his blog about how Mole 2010 can be used to explore data in an F# Interactive console session. His post includes a walkthrough document that contains the setup instructions and code snippets that make it possible. Note, Molosoft does not support this “exotic” usage of Mole 2010, but his post demonstrates that it is indeed possible.

Learn more about this in his post titled ‘Use Mole 2010 to explore data from the F# Interactive console‘.

Introducing Mole 2010

A few years ago, a few .NET developers teamed up and released Mole for Visual Studio 2008. Mole is a debugger visualizer that runs in Visual Studio while you are debugging .NET applications. Our goal was to make debugging easier, which Mole accomplishes because it provides a comprehensive view into all of your application’s data objects. Although the tool was created as a pet project to help us with our own work, it became quite popular, and has been downloaded more than 100,000 times (that we know about).

When Visual Studio 2010 was released, we had to make a decision. Either we could just upgrade the old Mole so that it works in Visual Studio 2010 (which some people have already done), or we could take the plunge and make Mole all that we knew it could be. We decided to take the plunge…

After a year of dedication and hard work, we are thrilled to announce that our new version of Mole is now available! Mole 2010 is the next generation of the Mole debugger visualizer, built to work in Visual Studio 2010. The new version of Mole makes the previous one look like a half-baked prototype.

Mole 2010 has many useful new features, bug fixes, and performance optimizations. Not only is it a more powerful tool, but it also looks much better and is easier to use. We rewrote the entire user interface in WPF, and even brought a professional Visual Designer onto the team to make sure that Mole looks as great as it works.

Our hard work resulted in a useful, powerful, and elegant debugging tool. We are extremely proud of Mole 2010.
