The Visual Studio Integrated version of Dotfuscator adds a Dotfuscator cascading menu to Visual Studio's View menu. Depending on what you are doing, you will see up to four items on this menu: Two items for viewing reports generated by a successful build, one item for launching the stack trace decoding tool, and one item to generate new shelf life tokens.
HTML renaming and removal reports can be viewed in Visual Studio. If the HTML report files exist and your Dotfuscator project is the active project in Solution Explorer, then two menu items (one for each report) are enabled on the View > Dotfuscator menu. Clicking on one will bring up the appropriate report in your default browser.
In Visual Studio, Dotfuscator's Stack Trace Decoding Tool is implemented as a Visual Studio tool window. You can activate it by clicking View > Dotfuscator > Decode Obfuscated Stack Trace from the menubar. For details on how to use the tool, see Decoding Obfuscated Stack Traces.
In Visual Studio, Dotfuscator's Shelf Life Token generator is implemented as a Visual Studio tool window. You can activate it by clicking View > Dotfuscator > Generate Shelf Life Token from the menubar. For details on how to use the tool, see Generate Shelf Life Token.
