ScottGu’s Linq to SQL Debug Visualizer

From ScottGu’s most excellent blog (http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/) you can download a free Visual Studio debugger add-in: the SQL Server Query Visualizer. Follow this thread to install it within your Visual Studio 2008: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/07/31/linq-to-sql-debug-visualizer.aspx.

This add-in is really useful because it allows you to check the query syntax built by LINQ before it’s sent to the database. Moreover, it allows you to execute the query from the debugger to discover if the result is what you were expecting. You can also modify the query.
