L.6. Wrap-Up

In this appendix, you learned how to insert, disable and remove breakpoints in the Visual Studio .NET debugger. Breakpoints allow you to pause program execution so you can examine variable values. This capability will help you locate and fix logic errors in your programs. You saw how to use the Locals and Watch windows to examine the value of an expression and how to change the value of a variable. You also learned debugger commands Step Into, Step Over, Step Out and Continue that can be used to determine whether a function is executing correctly. Finally, you learned how to use the Autos window to examine variables used specifically in the previous and next commands.
