Point of Execution

Edit and Continue applies to C/C++ programs only.

Some code changes may cause the point of execution to move to a new location when Edit and Continue applies the changes. Edit and Continue places the point of execution as accurately as possible, but the results may not be correct in all cases. A dialog box informs you when the point of execution changes. You should verify that the location is correct before you continue debugging. If it is not correct, use the Set Next Statement command. For more information, see Setting the Execution Point.

For information on the limitations of Edit and Continue with Visual Basic and Visual C#, see Edit and Continue with Visual C# and Visual Basic.
