In general, you cannot change the declarations of external methods during Edit and Continue. Specifically, Edit and Continue does not support the following changes:

  • Adding or removing an external declaration.

  • Changing the signature or marshalling attributes of an external declaration.

If you want to make one of these changes, you must stop debugging and recompile your project.
