IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Visual Studio Test Professional Valuable Features

The solution offers good memory analysis.

The solution has a lot of features on offer. We have not even utilized 100% features we used to use. From Visual Studio 6.0 onwards, the newer versions have a lot of features- including a built-in code analyzer - and all of that which would be very useful for us.

The solution can integrate with other solutions. In the past, we used to have BoundsChecker integrated with the solution for memory leak detection. 

The initial setup was pretty easy.

The stability has always been very good.

While I haven't used the feature, my understanding is that there are code-sharing capabilities among the developers in order to allow them to effectively review the code.

Customization is the most powerful feature of this product because you can mold and design to your requirements. It's possible, for example, to build an OCR test from PDF or work files or build your own component based on OCR provisions and obtain the data required to process. If you extract a bill you can get the identification of the vendor or IT of the product, its quantity, value, unit, and additional information. Test Professional has the advantage of being able to integrate with any kind of third-party service which is very useful for the programming phase. It also has the ability to integrate without programming or the need for developing any APIs or services to integrate with robots. A regular user can do it.

Visual Studio is highly powerful. It's probably the best software development tool on the market.

Some of the features appreciated by our teams that work with VS are:

IntelliSense, rename functions (classes, methods, variables), move definition to file, error navigation, search in files (match case, regex), NuGet package manager, GIT experience (especially at solving merge conflicts and view history on a specific file, compare with the previous file to see changes in time), watch list and the fact it can be pinned for the variable you are monitoring, conditional breakpoints, moving execution line up when debugging, shortcuts to arrange elements in the page and remove unused namespaces, possibility to chose the Thread you want to monitor when you have multiple threads, code snippets, easy navigation to the definition and to other classes/methods/properties that refer them, and configuration of code cleanup on multiple profiles and with a lot of options.

The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable. The documentation is simple but you will need to explore the solution and put in the effort for success.
