Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Tour the debug tool windows, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 06 Debug and Troubleshoot Code.
- There are lots of specialized debugging windows…available in Visual Studio.…Let me show you how to see them…and add or remove them from the IDE.…Before I start, let's talk about…the normal layout of our IDE,…without debugging windows.…I'll start by clicking on Window,…and then choosing Reset Window Layout.…This resets Visual Studio back to the defaults.…Now I'll open up this C# file…and you'll see the standard windows…that appear in an edit session.…
Over in the left side of the screen,…is the Server Explorer and the Toolbox.…On the right side of the screen is the Solution Explorer,…with several tabs,…and at the bottom of this screen is the Properties window.…That's what you see when you're editing.…What do you see when you debug?…You see a different set of windows.…Over here on the right side of the screen…is this thing called the Diagnostics window,…and it's showing a live view of what's happening…in my application, in my process memory.…It's doing a diagnostics calculation.…
I don't want to see this for the rest of the demo,…
