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.
