Runtime Watch Window

I am currently on a team that is writting a massive Winforms smart client
application. We use many custom business objects that are very complex in
nature. We would like to write a generic form that would act just like the
Visual Studio quickwatch window supplied in the IDE and distribute it in our
application. If we could achieve this, it would allow our technical support
staff to help debug potential issues at runtime by providing a graphical
representation of these objects via the UI.

Obviously I could write this myself using reflection. However, presenting
the reflected information in an organized manner would be a major
undertaking. Does anyone know of anything that is publically available that
would do the required work for us?

Thanks in advance.
