Documentation & Training Videos
I strongly encourage you to view the training videos (especially "How to Open Mole") here.
If you have never used a Visualizer before or don't know how Visual Studio launches them, you'll be frustrated. Please watch the videos and have a happy debugging experience with Mole.
Mole, like all Visual Studio Debugger Visualizers, is launched from a Data Tip, while at a breakpoint.
The below image show the Data Tip after hovering over the sender argument.
To open any available Visualizer, click on the magnifying glass down arrow, and a list of available visualizers will be displayed.
Unfortunately, in Visual Studio 2015, Microsoft has decided to remove the feature from the visualizers list that remember which visualizer was last used. Not sure why they hijacked the default visualizer the way they did. Makes no sense.
Data Tip Too Small
If you find the Data Tip is too small, there is a workaround for this. Just change its font size using the Visual Studio Options dialog.
Please watch the videos on my blog, you'll have a much better experience using Mole!
