Life would be much easier, if we had a tool like firebug for WPF, where we can see the anatomy of the application which is running. Luckily some of the WPF geeks are not as much lazy as we are and created a awesome tool for us named Snoop for WPF.
Here is what you can do with it,
- Can see the visual tree
- Change property at runtime
- Visual layers as 3d View.
Download and experience this tool from http://snoopwpf.codeplex.com/.
May the force be with you!.
