I wrote some classes and the debug is driving me craze.
it just lock up the system when I change some thing like comment out a redim statement, etc.
Is there a better way to debug? I am using VB 6 and with the regular vb debug step through.

For all DLLs and OCX controls and the likes, make sure you set binary compatibility on.

Then add all your projects into a project group, making sure your main .exe is the main project.

Now you can step through the whole code, jumping from main .exe to one of your .dlls/ocxes and so on, without problems.

That is what I am doing. I can step to all code. My problem is if I do something in the code of the Cls(such as comment out a redim statement), the system often lockup.
