What is a breakpoint in C# good for?
Experience Level: Junior
- A breakpoint is a place in a code of a computer program where the execution of the program pauses.
- A programmer can put one or more breakpoints into the source code to define the places where the execution of the program will pause.
- In Visual Studio a breakpoint is added to the source from code editor. Just open the .cs file, go to the line you want to place the breakpoint to and hit F9.
- When the program execution pauses at a breakpoint location, you can inspect the variables, resume the program execution (by pressing F5) or continue executing the rest of program one statement at a time (by pressing F10).
