Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Disable the WPF debugging tool, part of Windows Presentation Foundation 4: Brushes and Colors.
- Visual Studio includes a WPF specific debugging tool that shows up as an overlay on your application UI when you're debugging an application. I will not be using it during the course. So, in this video I'll show you how to disable it so your debugging UI looks the same as mine. Here's what the UI looks like that I'm talking about. I'll run this application, and this black bar here with these buttons is the debugging toolbar. It's a very useful tool, but I won't be using it during this course. You can see it will interfere with my UI, where it covers up part of my UI. So, I want to disable this toolbar.
Go to tools, options. Click on debugging, and then general. It's this section here: enable UI debugging tools for XAML, and there's a check mark here for show runtime tools in application. So, uncheck that, click on OK, rerun the application, and you'll see that that debugging toolbar is now disabled.
