Data Breakpoints in managed code
3/19/2008 1:07:46 PM
It would be really great to have the Data Breakpoints feature in Visual Studio not only for native code but also for managed code (C# at least :)
Visual Studio 2008
Operating System Language
There's no possibility to break the execution wherever the execution point is when the value of a variable changes. You only can get the information of the change of a var for specifics breakpoints.
Implement the Data Breakpoint for C#
TAP Code (if applicable)

Thanks for the feedback on the Visual Studio Debugger. Managed Data Breakpoints is something we have wanted for a long time. There is key infrastructure in the CLR that is missing for us to implement this. However, this is certainly on the list for a future version of VS. In the meantime, what most people do as a workaround this is use properties to access their fields and then set breakpoints in the setter of the property.
Thanks again for the feedback
