Changing code while debugging

P: n/a
In VB 6, you could change most code while your project was in Break mode. I
am targeting the Pocket PC, and VB .NET 2003 is not allowing me to change
code while debugging. Is this true for all VB .NET projects or just for the
Pocket PC?

Hi Mike,

You can change code while debugging, but than you have to restart your
debugging process.

One of the advantages from the next version is the possibilities to change
code and go on with debugging.

This changed in VB.net. Microsoft documented that you
could no longer change code in Break mode. I suppose
that makes it a "feature" of the language. However, in
my newest version they have enabled something called Edit
and Continue. Look under the Help index for that topic
and you can set your project to allow editing under
controlled circumstances.

Edit and Contunie will be re-introduced in VB.NET 2004. Currently, you
can select in the IDE settings to allow changing the code, but this
won't provide the same comfort as Edit and Continue in VB6.
