Debugging Lambda Expression in Visual Studio 2015

One of my favorite features in Visual Studio 2015 is the support for debugging lambda expressions.

This is a big productivity improvement for developers who spend a lot of time writing LINQ queries.

Till Visual Studio 2013, if we tried to add a LINQ/Lambda expression to the Quick watch or Immediate window – we used to get an error stating ‘Expression cannot contain lambda expressions’.

Starting from Visual Studio 2015, we can evaluate LINQ/Lambda expression in Watch Window, Immediate Window and in DataTips as well.
