image You’re debugging your app in VS, but you forgot to set a few breakpoints, now your code is gone off to never-never land!  How do you stop it RIGHT FREAK’N NOW?!!?!  I can help you with that!

So, you’ve gotten your 1st coffee, fired up VS, auto loaded your solution you’ve been slaving away for a week on, without thinking you press F5!  You forgot to set a few break points (F9)!  DOH!  Now your code has gone off to never-never land chugging away with all kinds of bits’n’bits but you can’t tell what is going on cause you can’t BREAK into the code to view any variables (SHIFT+F9).  What do you do?

Try this, CTRL+ALT+BREAK

Simple, VS will immediately STOP DEAD IN ITS TRACKS at the line of code it’s currently chugging away at.  In other words, it’s the …….STOP RIGHT F!@#$%^G NOW!!!!!!!!! command!  Very handy for those mornings (or nights) you forget to set a few breakpoints and now your codes gone awry!

Now that you know how to stop your code now, it’s time to grab a coffee and get coding!
