      What happened with Visual Studio "15?

    • User profile image

      1) At 2:32, Run to Click feature is same as Run To Cursor (Ctrl +F10) & Set Next Statement(Ctrl+Shift+F10)

      2) At 10: 03, the lines are gone when you use for loop

      Its everything online today!!
      Will it be better ie., lighter and faster than php?
      Every-time it promises for a better language but yields something else.
      I think instead of making languages simplified it complicates in return.
      As such small players and organisations find it difficult to accept. They fear the odds of
      management and support.

      Rather than hurry,,
      It should come with a easy, simplified, fast and light language for everyone.

      Let's Wait!!!

      Sorry if I am wrong.

      One should risk for bla,,bla,,blaaaaaaaaaaaa........

      It takes time to master a language.
      One gets involved in mastering by wasting valuable time, energy and everything.
      By the time he acquires he realizes he has blundered his career and time and finds himself nowhere.

      Its might be bla,,bla,,bla........
      as the previous bla,,bla,,bla........

      VS 2017 makes me feel like superman with code

    • User profile image

      Love it - well done, sir !! :)

      Great improvements over VS2015 BUT disappointed that the Unit Test that stopped working for me for over a month is still an issue with VS2017 RC. I tried out VS2017 RC in the hope that the problem would be rectified. But sadly no. This issue is already logged against VS2017 at url: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/2583/cannot-runt-test-in-the-simple-uwp-unit-testing-ap.html
      How such an important design issue (Unit Testing) remain unresolved really surprises me. I cannot use VS2015, nor VS2017 to run a unit test because the tests are not discovered. Please do something about this.

      The perf tip explanation is not correct. Time taken for that line of code to execute ?? That line has not executed yet. In fact it tells you what it is in the tool tip : time elapsed since the previous breakpoint. Also isn't run-to-click the same as run-to-cursor ? granted it is a nice convenience but it does not really solve the problem you state (temp breakpoints)
