Thanks for your post!
Can I please check--are you using sampling mode of profiling? Or do you have Tools>Options>'Avoid profiling extremely trivial methods' enabled?
So long as you have one of the "all methods inc. framework" profiling modes selected and have enabled profiling of trivial methods, you should see every single managed method call that your application makes, including those from framework DLLs. (You'll also want to make sure to display 'All methods')
Just a few notes:
- The profiler sorts methods in the call tree in order execution time (it's not possible to sort them chronologically)
- The area you have selected on the timeline will also affect what you see in the call tree, so it may be worth selecting the entire timeline to check for the methods you're interested in
I'm also not sure if you are looking for line-level timings of the frameworks DLLs, but if you are, you could try downloading a trial of .NET Reflector - http://www.red-gate.com/products/dotnet ... reflector/
and generating pdb files for the framework DLLs you're interested in. You can then place these in your application directory so that the profiler will find them and give line-level timings for those DLLs.
Hope this helps!
