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

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