    public partial class Patient : Bitlink.DataAccess.BusinessObject
        internal Int64 patient_id; 
        public Int64 Patient_id
            get { return patient_id; }
                patient_id = value;
                _data_access_isdirty = true;


the code:

[DebuggerDisplay("{Forname,nq} {Surname,nq} (Patient_id: {Patient_id,nq})")]

from the namespace:   System.Diagnostics
