debugger

Hello Guys,
                 I am little confused here and need you help. See example below. I am invoking a Form2 instance AccRequestForm from a main form's menu bar. AccRequestForm is shown and has a button event button1_Click that is supposed to execute method myAccount(). Actually, it does and I see the message box but I don't see the yellow debugging line explicetly going to the method, it just shows the result of the method. I would like to see the debugger passing over control to the method so I could monitor each code line. Perhaps it has to do with how I activated AccRequestForm? It come on top of the main form when shown and stays there after the button is clicked. Probabbly I should deactivate or hide it on Click event? Where and how do I do that?



Thanks a lot,
Serge


private void reconciliationReportToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Form2 AccRequestForm = new Form2();

            AccRequestForm.Activate();
           
            AccRequestForm.Show();
        }


System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form2 : Form
    {
        int IOAccount;
       
        public Form2()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
         
            myAccount();
     
        }

        private void myAccount()
        {

            int ll = 10;
            MessageBox.Show("My Number is" + ll +IOAccount);
        }

    }

}

Ah ok. You need to learn a new debugger key :o)

F10 is the Step-over key, which means it will call any methods it encounters but will not step through them. If you press F11 when myAccount() is highlighted then the debugger will step into the method, you can the go back to F10 to step through each line.

Bascially F10 allows you to step through a method without having to drop into the details of any method it calls, to drop into a method call you use F11.

Are you currently stepping through the code or have you set a breakpoint inside the myAccount() method ?

I put a breaking point inside button1_Click event and after I press F10 on myAccount() line the yellow line never goes to the method's body but hangs for a split sec and shows the message window.
