I thought the Linq to SQL Query Visualizer had been reintroduced into Beta 2 however I cannot find it.  There is no magnifying class when you hover over a query result.  Just the sql query as a string. 

I have attached a screenshot of what I get.

Thank you for taking the time to try out new LINQ to SQL feature in beta2 and providing feedback. The query visualizer is a sample that is available in source form in a zip file that is installed for all SKUs exception Visual Studio Express. The visualizer project and sources are in Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Samples\1033\

After extracting the files, you can use Visual Studio 2008 beta2 to build visualizer DLL and install the DLL in either the machine-wide or user-specific visualizers directory.

Thanks again for trying and giving feedback.
