Changes to constants while in Edit and Continue mode are very limited. Specifically, Edit and Continue does not support the following changes:

  • Defining a new constant, unless the constant is private and there are no occurrences of the constant name in any active statement.

  • Changing the type or value of a constant.

  • Removing a constant.

If you want to make one of these changes, you must stop debugging and recompile your project.

There is no limit on adding, changing, or removing local constants inside a method body.
