It would be really great to have the Data Breakpoints feature in Visual Studio not only for native code but also for managed code (C# at least :)

Thanks for the feedback on the Visual Studio Debugger. Managed Data Breakpoints is something we have wanted for a long time. There is key infrastructure in the CLR that is missing for us to implement this. However, this is certainly on the list for a future version of VS. In the meantime, what most people do as a workaround this is use properties to access their fields and then set breakpoints in the setter of the property.

Thanks again for the feedback
