Debug not setpping in reflector's decompiled assemblies

Postby francofs » Thu Jan 20, 2011 2:28 pm

Hi, I've been trying to step through the code of come .net controls by using .net reflector decompilation. The problem is that I set the breakpoint to the libraries but it never reaches/stops there, not even on class constructors.
And I verified that it corresponds to loaded symbols, so no the breakpoint red circle is not outlined only.

I'm using Reflector with VS 2008, .net framework 3.5, all service packed.

I appreciate any help.
Regards,

Hi.

If you stop in the debugger and look in the modules window, do you see that a pdb file has been loaded (using the symbol status and the symbols loaded columns)?

Are the breakpoints definitely set - are there red filled circles next to the relevant lines of source?

Do you have a reproducible example we could try?

Thanks

As I mentioned, it's not an outlined circle, it's a filled circle. But I already solved the problem and I think you guys from redgate should take note to alert users for common "Oh my god you're stupid" problems.

The problem was that Visual Studio crashed while I was out for a few minutes, then when I restarted it I noticed that all the assemblies were browsable and were decompiled. The problem is that, whe VS crashed, a few items got unchecked from "Choose assemblies to debug..." and a few were not, so I got some random behaviour and forgot to check the items checked there and I wrongly assumed that if I could browse the libraries, they were available for debug.

Thanks for the help.
