Adding pause to execution.

Firstly I am not after a programatic solution (e.g. Console.ReadLin e() or a
Loop construct).

I am trying to find an option in the IDE to pause on exit. For instance with
the SharpDevelop IDE there is a checkbox to do this, but I cant find it in
VS2003 -but I will be surprised if it doesnt have one.

.....So where is it??

Thanks,

Mark.

P.S.
If you are wondering why the programatic construct is not ok, then it is
because I want to pause on exit with solutions in multi languages e.g. C#,
Perl, Python etc, and I dont want to spend time missing about trying to find
the construct (additionally I dont want to have to add code which is only
functional for testing purposes only).

Mark,

Can you elaborate a little bit? What do you mean by pause, and what do
you mean by exit? Do you want the IDE to wait before it exits, or do you
want it to wait a little when the program it is debugging exits?

Or is it something else completely that you mean?

He means that the [console] program being started up by the IDE for
debugging purposes should pause (like "Press any key to continue...") before
the console window vanishes and any text output is lost.

Ahh, ok.

There is nothing like this in the framework. However, now, in VS.NET
2005, console applications have their input/output redirected to another
window in the IDE, which is not cleared when the console program exits.

Start the app using Ctrl-F5 rather than F5, this will hold hte console window open. F5 attaches the debugger so it expects to hit a breakpoint (thats why it doesn't keep the console window open)

So it's probably the thread the process is running on that should be suspended or put to sleep. But just...

I have a program that I need the program to temporarly stop and wait for a response from a piece of equipment. After a set period I want the program to continue. Like below --execute lline before pause --pause statement- pausefor set period --execute line after pause I tried using a timer but the timer messes up my sequence of execution. I used a do loop that kept checking the current time versus the starting time.

Hi, I would like to disable the 'Pause/Break' key in a console application. Normally, pressing the 'Pause' key halts the application's execution and may lead to undesirable processing gaps in my system. I tried to 'listen' for input key presses using Console.ReadKey(), but it turns out that it doesn't recognize the 'Pause' key (among other keys).
