Once the Add-In is loaded you will see two new menu entries in the Tools menu. One is to configure the dynaTrace Plugin (dynaTrace Configuration), the other one is to Launch the currently opened project by automatically injecting the dynaTrace .NET Agent into the launched application (dynaTrace Launcher).
This plugin allows you to Lookup Source Code for a method traced by dynaTrace. From the dynaTrace Client you can select a method in the Methods or PurePath Dashlet and Lookup the method in Visual Studio. Please be aware that the code lookup only works for C# Source Code.
The plugin also allows you to launch an application from the IDE and automatically inject the dynaTrace Agent to trace the launched application.
The plugin also extends the Visual Studio Load Testing Feature with a new tab in the Web Test Result Viewer. When you test a web application and the requests made by Visual Studio return PurePath IDs (by using the Web Test Plugin or by specifying "Always send dynaTrace HTTP Headers" in the ASP.NET Sensor) then you can directly lookup a PurePath from the Result Viewer in Visual Studio
