Edit and Continue (Visual Basic): Constants Edits
This topic applies to:
Pro, Premium, and Ultimate
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.
