Save a set of breakpoints

Posted on 2012-08-16

Is there a way in the Visual Studio 2010 IDE to save off a "set" of breakpoints?

I have breakpoints in several locations.  At times I may want to activate them.  At other times I may want to deactivate them.  But I won't remember where they were set.

Any help?

    whenever you set a breakpoint, it will be automatically remembered in the "Breakpoints" window in VS IDE.

    you can see all the breakpoints with the filename and locations in that "Breakpoints" window.

    press CTRL+ALT+B will display the breakpoint window.  or navigate Debug->Windows->Breakpoints

    There you can opt to enable/disable the breakpoints. also you can export/import the breakpoints into/from a file.

    This "Breakpoints" window will help you more by setting/removing breakpoint without navigating to each file and exact locations.

    Hope this will help you a lot.
