How to: Enable and Disable Edit and Continue

You can disable or enable Edit and Continue in the Tools / Options dialog box at design time. You cannot change this setting while you are debugging.

Edit and Continue works only in debug builds. For native C++, Edit and Continue requires using the /INCREMENTAL option.

To enable/disable Edit and Continue

  1. In the Tools / Options dialog box, open the Debugging node, and select the Edit and Continue category.

    If you want to use Edit and Continue in an ASP.NET solution, you must also enable Edit and Continue in the project properties (in the Solution Explorer, select the project node, right-click, and select Properties. On the Web properties page, check Enable Edit and Continue.)

  2. To enable, select the Enable Edit and Continue check box. To disable, clear the check box.

    Note Note

    If IntelliTrace is enabled and you collect both IntelliTrace events and call information, Edit and Continue is disabled. For more information, see Configure IntelliTrace to collect debugging information.

  3. Click OK.
