I just mean the visual studio live debugger integration.

it has never been particularly friendly.

using the debugger is friendly, and so are certain operations like Debug.WriteLine and Debugger.IsAttached, but to create "views" for objects beyond really simple things can often require custom code.

It's just that most people never really need to do it. The question in the OP is one that just doesn't come up that often in the real world. As those often can be, the solution is arcane. It's one of those dark corners of the debugger most people never need to touch.

How many people need to filter items in a collection or dictionary at debug time only?

Fortunately it's not a lot of code. The meat of it is in a single short method.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
