Sending the LINQ To SQL log to the debugger output window

I was playing with LINQ To SQL (again) this evening, and I thought: why can’t I see the generated SQL statments in my debugger output window?

The DataContext.Log property is a great help to learn writing LINQ To SQL queries. All you need to do is assign a TextWriter to it, and you get to see al the SQL statements generated by the data context. But where do you send them to? Console.Out is an option, but you probably don’t want that in a release build. Furthermore, it doesn’t quite work for Windows services or ASP.NET applications. That’s why I wrote DebuggerWriter, an implementation of TextWriter that writes to the debugger log.

Find the code at my U2U Blog.
