How to Make Your Visual Studio Code Better

text editor for a developer is everything. As a programmer, we sit and edit text all day long, every day. We spend most of our time looking at code and finding the best solutions to problems. Reading and writing. Thinking about why this function or that method doesn’t work. Stepping through the code line by line, variable by variable, and squashing bugs left, right and center. The text editor that you choose determines how you’ll be interacting with your code and development environment.

Now, you can use a traditional text editor like Notepad on Windows, or you can get super fancy and develop in XCode only (because Apple requires Apple for Apple). There is VIM, EMACS, Sublime, Nano, Notepad++, gedit, Ulysses. Graphical, non-graphical, and more. However, many text editors are just that: text editors (who’da thought!), and we as developers need more than something that just stream-edits text to a file.

Making Breakpoints Useful in Visual Studio

How many times have you done this because you wanted to check how the value of some variable changes over time:

  1. Set a breakpoint
  2. Wait for Visual Studio to stop on the line
  3. Check the value of the variables you’re interested in
  4. Press F5 to continue
  5. Wait for Visual to stop on the line again
  6. Check the value of the variables you’re interested in
  7. Press F5 to continue
  8. Repeat …

There’s a better way. You can have your breakpoints automatically print a message to your Output Windows and keep right on executing. You’ll get a reviewable list of all of the values your variable has had, listed in order (no more “Wait! What was the last value? I’ve forgotten.”).

How you take advantage of this feature depends on what version of Visual Studio you’re using. In older versions of Visual Studio, right-click on a breakpoint and select the When Hit option from the popup menu. In more recent versions of Visual Studio, you still right-click on the breakpoint, but then you select the Actions option.

In the resulting dialog box you can put in any text you want displayed, along with the names of the variables whose values you want displayed. The variable names must be enclosed in curly braces ( { } ). This example displays the value of the EditorCount variable with the text “Count:”:

Count: {EditorCount}

You’ll also find that you have a Continue Execution option in the dialog. That option is checked by default and, if you leave it checked, then Visual Studio won’t stop executing when it reaches your breakpoint. Instead, when Visual Studio reaches your breakpoint, you’ll get your message logged to the Output window and Visual Studio will keep right on going.
