How to use it?

Hi,

looks like a very useful tool. But the big question is - how to use it? Let's start with something simple - how do I set up a breakpoint?

I have not done much with Deblector, but I know that it is an integration of Mdbg into Reflector.

Here are some Mdbg links:

Hi,

I stumbled across the same problem, eventually found (part of?) the solution:

When you have started debugging a process, nagivate to the method you want to add a breakpoint to, select the "IL View" tab, and in the IL code select some labelled code (not the initialization stuff at the top). In the "Shell" tab, you should get a confirmation message regarding the new breakpoint.

As far as I can tell, you can only add breakpoints at the start of the method, you cannot select a specific line of code to break on (or otherwise I'd love to know how!).

HTH,
