Debugging in the IDE

P: n/a
I've just started using VB.NET.

In VB6 IDE, if you stepped through the code, you could change it and then
step through it again by moving the yellow position bar up a bit and
stepping through the same code. This seemed a very efficient way of working.

In VB.NET, you don't seem to have the same option. If you step through a
piece of code, notice an error, change it and go back you get a choice of
either starting all over again (very frustrating) or ignoring the changes
you've just done, which to my mind is the same is having to start again.

I can't really believe this is how it is and feel sure I have missed a
setting somewhere.

Thanks

Hmm - 6 minutes for a reply - that was good!

Thanks Peter. Not the answer I wanted to hear, but at least I got one.

Nope - you haven't missed anything. That's how it is in VB.NET for VS.NET
2002 and 2003. However, the Edit and Continue feature has been re-introduced in VB2005 (Whidbey). So, you might want to take a look at VB2005 instead if circumstances permit.

You can download the Express editions from here for free:

The full beta versions are available for MSDN subscribers from:

hope that helps..

Edit and Contunie will be re-introduced in VB 2005. 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 (which means, that
changes won't take effect until you restart your application).
