It is available since from initial version of visual studio i.e. Visual Studio 2000. At that time there was no code intelligence.

It has so many cool features which will make the developer life essay to debug the code

1. We can evaluate the return values of method particularly if it is being called by client code

3. we can easily view the data source while debugging

4. we can easily view the variable holding data.

using System.Data;

        static void Main(string[] args)
            int a = 100;
            Test obj = new Test();

            //Storing data in straing array
            string[] name = new[] { "Ram", "Mohan", "Chandradev" };

            //Storing data in datatable
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Columns.Add("UserId", typeof(int));
            dt.Columns.Add("UserName", typeof(string));
            dt.Columns.Add("Password", typeof(string));
            dt.Rows.Add(1, "Ramesh", "Chandradev");


        private static int GetSum(int a, int b)
            return a + b;
