Hi

Is there a technique to break code at every point that a certain variable or textbox value
changes.
I know how to add a watch to a certain variable. Can you extend this to break at every point
that the variables value changes.

Thanks

In VB.Net (2002-2003-2005) when I need to monitor a variable like that, I create a property and place a breakpoint in the Get method.

In VB6, that feature exists. You need to add your variable to the Watches window, edit the watch and select "break when value changes"

I don't know. Probably related to the new compiler/debugger.
