*Note: I had to reupload this package due to issues with the gallery causing an error page anytime anyone viewed the extension page or tried to update the package. If you have a previous version of Objection Exporter (prior to 1.2.4) please uninstall it and install this extension as to receive any future updates.
Object Exporter lets you export out an object while debugging in Visual Studio, the object can be serialized in either C#, JSON or XML.
The currently supported output formats are: C# Object Initialization Code, JSON and XML.
Object Exporter is accessed through the tools menu and is only visible when you are debugging.
Once the menu option is selected a dialog is shown with settings for the Object Export.
Object exporter has two modes for selecting objects to export, one is by selecting from a checklist which is populated with your locals.
The other mode is by writing a custom expression as you would in the watch window.
Once an object is written or selected, object exporter will attempt to calculate it's depth in the background. This depth will give you an indication of what cutoff would need to be specified to export the entire object. Note some objects may contain circular references.
Once your objects and settings are selected, you may export them in your desired format. A dialog will be displayed with the generated ouput for each of your objects.
Object exporter settings is access through Tools -> Options -> Object Exporter
Object Exporter is powered by RayGun.
