How to: Set Breakpoints in a Script
This topic applies to:
Pro, Premium, and Ultimate
In Visual Studio 2008, you can set a breakpoint in a server-side file. At run time, the breakpoint is automatically mapped to a breakpoint at the corresponding location in the client-side file.
Breakpoint mapping is subject to certain limitations. For more information, see Limitations on Script Debugging.
Client-side breakpoints persist across debugging sessions, even if you close Visual Studio.
To set a breakpoint in a script file
Open the server-side script file.
On the line where you want to set the breakpoint:
Click the gutter on the left side of the source window, or
Right-click the line.
Point to Breakpoint, and then click Insert Breakpoint.
If you are in debug mode or break mode, the breakpoint is immediately mapped to the client-side file. If you are in design mode, the breakpoint is mapped when you start debugging.
