I have several method calls to the same method. Below is a simple example where two calls are made on separate lines.
Is there a way to tell the debugger to set a breakpoint wherever the method GetSumTotal() is called ?

RIght now I have to go to each line individually and set a break point. I could save much time if I were able to jet tell the debugger
to set a breakpoint whenver a certain method is called.

1     GetSumTotal()

300 GetSumTotal()

Put the breakpoint in that method instead.  You can look at the call stack to see where it was called from

Hi brgdotnet ,

Directly put the break point on description of method GetSumTotal() and click on F5. It will directly hit on the description of method  GetSumTotal() .
