Debug Execution Time for Each Line of Code

Hello,

I've written an application in vb.net 2005 which loads a table from SQL server and then fills a table with the data.
Its now in a production environment for testing and its very slow at filling the table.
It isnt slow to load the data from the server because i've put in a message box to tell me when the .Fill has finished execution. It is slow to fill the table.

(sub-note: I have a treeview control and have to scan the tree to see if it contains a "parent". If doesn't exist then either a new parent node is added to the tree, or if a parent is found, a "child" is place under that parent. I believe it is the for..loop which is slow)

I'd like to run the code and receive a list of all the code and a measurement by each line telling me how long it took to execute.

I dont want to use the Timer method (i.e.storing the start time of the code and using the end time to work out the total execution time). This would be impractical as I need to do this for every line of code.

I'd prefer a piece of debugging software, that has a free-trial or is free :-)
Or something that's built into visual studio.

Many thanks

If you're running Visual Studio 2005 Team System then use the Profiler. If not, then the best of breed tool is NCover... which is unfortunately very expensive. If you've got the budget for either, I would suggest NCover but also go with either VS 2005 Team Edition for Software Developers...

There's an open source tool, PartCover, which I have no experience with at all. It also concerns me that the tool appears to come out of Eastern Europe without offering a source code that I can build for myself to make sure it's not doing anything crazy behind the covers.
