Visual Studio Dapr Extension (Preview)
The Dapr extension for Visual Studio enables you to view, manage, diagnose, and debug Dapr services within Visual Studio.
Starting with the Dapr Extension
Enabling the Dapr run file debugging experience was the initial concern for the extension but there is considerable other feature work in progress. While not available by default, this work in progress can be enabled via feature flags.
Enabling Dapr Preview Features
Dapr Tool Window
The Dapr tool window displays information about running Dapr applications, such as its loaded components and various ports, and will be familiar to users of the VS Code Dapr extension. It can be opened via the View > Other Windows > Dapr menu command. For applications using a "default" state store (i.e. Redis), you can also open an additional Dapr State Stores tool window to show just the state for that application.
For applications using Dapr actors, you can also open an additional Dapr Actors tool window to show just the state for individual actor instances.
