Runtime Flow v1.1.1 released

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sergey Vlasov @ 5:20 am

Runtime Flow v1.1.1 adds integration with Visual Studio 2010. Toolbar, Flow and Summary windows, go to source – everything works in VS 2010 IDE now:

Monitoring of .NET 4.0 applications is also now supported:
Monitoring summary of a .NET 4.0 WPF application

CLR v4 adds ability to run several CLR instances side by side in a single process. It rarely occurs in practice (see Common in-proc SxS scenarios) so currently Runtime Flow monitors only the first runtime loaded and ignores the rest.

As there are two windows now (Flow and Summary), common commands such as Run, Customized run, Clear and About were moved to the new toolbar in Visual Studio:

The new toolbar also adds commands to open the Flow and Summary windows. The previous command to open the Runtime Flow window in the Other Windows menu is now removed. When monitoring is started with both windows closed, the Runtime Flow window is opened automatically.

The next version of Runtime Flow introduces the Runtime Summary window:

Runtime Summary window

Runtime Summary window


It lists all classes and functions that were used during a program run organized by modules and namespaces. All elements are alphabetically sorted. New functions are added in real time and removed by the Clear command the same way as in the Runtime Flow window.

Search field allows you to search for namespaces, classes and functions. Each new search continues from the selected node. The Locate in flow toolbar button finds the selected class or function in the Runtime Flow window. Press the Locate in flow button again to find the next occurrence.
