How to see Program screen while stepping thru code

When I set a code break the running screen goes blank.  Can it be viewed while stepping thru code to view changes?

you don't have this problem when you have 2 screens and you have your running application on a different screen. this is due to the debug which is a blocking process and stops all other events like Paint to be done.

When you say on a different screen do you mean two different physical monitors?
If so, then the running application would not be updated as the steps are advanced using F8

yes 2 physicals monitors attached to the same computer. I have this setup and I can see my screen while stepping through the code.

And while you step through the code using F8 the other screen changes accordingly?
