DILE v0.2.6

I have uploaded a new version of DILE on to Sourceforge.

zip file (x86):
zip file (x64):
readme.txt: readme.txt
license.txt: license.txt
change_log.txt: change_log.txt

There are four main improvements besides several small ones and bug fixes (see the change_log.txt for more details):
  • Generics (type parameters) are now completely supported, which means that the Object Viewer window can inspect and display such types perfectly and expressions that contain type parameters can be evaluated during debugging as well.
  • .NET 2.0 permission sets are now displayed correctly. Earlier I could not find the specification of these; and thus I just displayed the binary content which often resulted in ugly unicode characters. Eventually, I could find the specification and this problem is fixed now.
  • Events are disassembled. This was my mistake, I simply forgot about events... In the Project Explorer the tree now contains an "Events" node where a class' events are collected.
  • Enums are also parsed now and can be used in expressions. However, my implementation differs from Visual Studio's. Mine is not so strict, which means that enum values don't have to be converted to int or their other underlying type. E.g.: TestApplication.TestClass.TestMethod(TestApplication.TestEnum.TestField) is accepted by DILE, it's not necessary to cast the TestApplication.TestEnum.TestFiled to int.

Proper .NET 2.0 permission set (instead of the ugly unicode characters)

Event of a class

New generic instance created by evaluating expression

Calling instance method with type parameter on a generic object

Array of generic objects

Array of generic structs

Calling a method that has its own type parameters but also uses its enclosing generic class's type parameter as well

Passing enum as parameter (instead of int value as earlier)

Here are some of the expressions that I used for testing. These are correctly evaluated by the new version:
new TestApplication.GenericsTest(5, "test")
new TestApplication.GenericsTest2().GenericMethod(5)
new TestApplication.GenericsTest(5, "test").GenericMethod(6)
new TestApplication.TestClass.NestedClass()
new TestApplication.GenericClass.NestedGenericClass()
new TestApplication.TestClass.NestedClass[] {new TestApplication.TestClass.NestedClass()}
new TestApplication.TestClass[] {new TestApplication.TestClass(1, "one")}
new System.DateTime[] {System.DateTime.Now}
new TestApplication.GenericStruct[] {new TestApplication.GenericStruct(1, "one")}
TestApplication.GenericClass.NestedGenericClass.StaticMixedMethod(System.DateTime.Now, 5, null)
new TestApplication.DebugTest.InnerClass[] {new TestApplication.DebugTest.InnerClass(), null}
new TestApplication.GenericClass(TestApplication.EnumClass.TestField)
System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(V_0) (V_0 is a byte array)

P.S.: According to SourceForge DILE has been downloaded more than 10,000 times! Wow! Thank you! :-)
