VB.NET debugging

In VB6 you could change your code while in debug. But in VB.NET I'm told it
is read only can this be changed? A bit annoying if you have to keep
stopping the app to make your changes then start it up again to see if it
works.

there is a setting in Tools>Options>D ebugging>Edit and Continue

It should allow you to turn it on for VB. I dont know if this will do what you want or not.

Hi Darren, Rick.

I've got v2002.

Edit-and-continue doesn't continue execution with the edits. Ity just
allows you to have them ready for the next rebuild. Sometimes you can't even
do the editting.

I believe that proper edit-and-continue-with-edits will be in an IDE near
you soon.

Regards,
Fergus

Thats what i thought i had remembered, but I have just gotten used to having to stop and make my
changes when debugging. If they get a decent edit&Continue feature going in a coming version, it
will certainly be welcome.

Edit and Continue will be re-introduced in VS.NET Whidbey (2004).

Scenario: This is about debugging server side scripts that make calls to middle-tier business DLLs. The server side scripts are legacy ASP 3.0 pages, and the DLLs are managed DLLs converted/developed with VB.NET. What I want from debugging is to be able to step into the methods in the DLLs called from ASP scripts using Visual Studio .NET. Background: For typical script debugging issues, you can read and follow the two documents on...

Hi everybody, My problem seems a bit clichè but I could not work around. Well I read lots of MSDN papers and discussions, but my problem is a bit different from them.

Hi, Using VS.NET 2003, when I use 'F5' to start debugging my web app, it obviously attaches the IDE to IIS for server debugging. However, it also seems to put IE into some kind of debugging mode (for javascript debugging) This causes IE to consume loads of CPU if the page is very large. Is there any way to have debugging of server side code but leave IE in "normal" mode?

Hi All, My system: WinXP Pro, VS.NET 2003, SQL Server Personal Edition. I'm having problems with my old favourite demon, SQL Debugging from within VS.NET. I have to say I've found this particular feature to be one of the most useful and (sadly) unreliable/fragile features in VS.NET, it seems the slightest thing will break it.

VS 2008 initially didn't debug classic ASP. SP1 fixes this in some ways. You can debug if you select the debug option to "Start Without Debugging, then either attach the debugger manually or place a stop directive in the code which ends up doing the same thing. The problem with this is that you can't debug browser side Javascript in the same debug run. You get a "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. The document is not loaded." if...
