Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Even more debugging windows, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 06 Debug and Troubleshoot Code.
- [Voiceover] There are a lot of debugging windows…available in Visual Studio.…There are nearly 30 specialized windows.…We've looked at most of those windows…in other videos in this course.…Let's examine a few more.…They used to live inside this windows menu.…That doesn't look like 30 because some…of the specialized windows only show up…when I have a debugger attached to the application.…So let's choose start debugging,…and then we'll go look in that…windows menu again.…Be sure and put a break point in the code,…or you won't be able to follow along.…
There we go, there's a lot more windows now.…I'll start by talking about these windows.…Tasks, parallel stacks, and parallel watch.…These windows are useful when debugging code…written to take advantage of…the .Net task parallel libraries,…and the async, and await language key words.…Async code is a big topic, one I'll save…for another time.…The same holds true with a threads debugging window.…It assumes you understand the treading model…in .Net, and windows.…The point I want to emphasize is this.…
