Event Tracking Dialog Box

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Makes it possible for you to see when each event occurs in relation to other events. Use this dialog box to determine the most efficient place to include your code.

This dialog box appears when you choose Event Tracking from the Tools Menu, Debugger Window.

Turn event tracking on
Toggles event tracking on or off.

When event tracking is enabled, every time a system event in the Events to track list occurs, the name of the event is displayed in the Debug Output window or written to a file.

Available events
Displays all available events that are not selected for tracking.
Tip   If you are not specifically working with mouse movements, remove the MouseMove event from the Events to track list. MouseMove events typically occur very frequently.
Events to track
Displays all events that you want to track.

Send Output To

Debugger Output Window
