I'm sending my output to the debug window in the following way in my win form:

 Debug.Write(returnValue);
when I view the output window I'm not getting any output atall. What this above statement should do? I believe, this should send the output to the output window or some where else?
please someone advice me.

Thanks!

Generally it should, unless you have switched the output stream somewhere, or you have the "Redirect all Output Window text to the Immediate Window" set.

Also note the output pane in visual studio ide has a drop-down to select the output from Build or Debug - are you overlooking this?

Are you stepping through the code and not seeing output after this line executes? If so try Debug.WriteLine() instead - may not have made it into the Output buffer after a single Write command.

Are you running in release mode? If so, debug.write will be skipped.

Set a breakpoint at the debug.write line, and run the app. Does it stop at the breakpoint? If yes, check the Immediate window and see if the output is there. If not, you are running in release mode. You need to change it to run in debug mode, in order for the debug.write to be executed.

Try using Console.WriteLine() instead.
