Edit and Continue (Visual Basic): Class Declaration Edits
This topic applies to:
Pro, Premium, and Ultimate
Most changes to class declarations are not allowed by Edit and Continue while in Break mode. Specifically, Edit and Continue does not support the following changes:
Creating a new class.
Renaming, deleting, or changing the inheritance of an existing class.
Implementing a new interface or removing the implementation of an interface.
Changing any of the following modifiers on a class: MustInherit, NotInheritable, or Shared.
Adding, changing, or removing ComClass status.
Changing the access modifier for a class.
Editing any generic class declaration.
If you want to make one of these changes, you must stop debugging and recompile the project.
