Automating  the debugging in VS 2010

Hi there;

I want to automating  the debugging in VS 2010. From this, I mean;

Suppose, you have got a small appl. having 2 forms, in the first form, 2 text boxes and 1 button, in the 2nd form, 1 text area. While debugging for the 2nd form element, I put a breakpoint in the related section of the 2nd form.

When I run for debugging, I have to enter a value in the text box and push the button in the first form at first. I don't want to do that since it's time consuming and directly go to my breakpoint in the second form. ( for 2 forms, it is not time consuming but for 100 forms it sure is).

How can we fix this?

Kind regards.

Go into program.cs and change which form is passed to Application.Run():

            Application.Run(new Form2()); // <-- start with Form2 instead of the default Form1

But if a parameter is passed from form1 to form2. This fails, right?

If you want Form2 to start then click My Priject in the upper right corner. Then in the Application tab look for "Startup form:" and change it to Form2

Well, yeah...if your form is dependent upon external variables then you'll either need to:
(1) Follow the normal flow of your program so they are produced and passed
(2) Hard-code the values into the form temporarily
(3) Modify the form so it pulls the values as command-line arguments and put those in the Project --> Properties --> Debug Tab

maybe the question should be that are there any automator for filling the respective values for a solution. Is there any?

Kind regards.
