    Resolved [RESOLVED] Where am I ?

    Hi,

    When I'm in Debug Mode and testing my project I often use BreakPoints and use the Watch windows to show me various data, sometimes though the program will 'hang' outside of a breakpoint and at those time it would be nice to be able to ask 'Where am I ?'.

    Is there a key, or key combination, to ask to be placed at the current code line ?

    It's very tedious stepping through one instruction at a time from a breakpoint, and even then quite often the yellow highlight just disappears.

    Poppa.

    Normally, that would be the Pause button, which will usually pause the code and take you to the code that is currently being executed. This may not be the exact line, though, if the hang is not in code you wrote.

    Thanks Shaggy Hiker, all I have to do now is locate the pause button on this laptop

    It's on the debugging menu bar, I believe. It may also have changed style in the newer version of VS. In 2010, it is two small, parallel, green, lines, just like the pause symbol on tape players, DVD players, and so forth.
