Does any one know if there is a built in feature for Visual Studio 2005/2008 that will allow me to time how long a block of code takes to execute?
I hate writing temp code to manually track the execution time from say line: 5 to line: 65.

Thanks

Hi used2could,

You can use a stopwatch

    Dim stopWatch As New Stopwatch  
    stopWatch.Start()

    ' your code

    stopWatch.Stop()
    Debug.WriteLine(stopWatch.ElapsedMilliseconds.ToString)

Well I don't know another way to do it. I normally see this method from others to test code speed/execution time.

Perhaps exists but maybe a 3dr party control.

Ipaulino,
You're probably right about it not existing in VS 2005/2008 but i had my fingers crossed :( i'll leave this open for a little while to see if maybe someone has something different to say.

But you're answer is spot on so far.
