I am struggling to overcome this obstacle and I have high hopes that someone on SO can help.
When I set a breakpoint in my class library project. It appears as a normal breakpoint. When I start debugging my solution the breakpoint becomes hollowed out and has a yellow triangle with an exclamation point inside. The tooltip displayed when I pan over the breakpoint is, "The Breakpoint will not currently be hit. No Symbols have been loaded for this document."
This project is not an ASP.NET application, it is simply a winForms application.
I have taken over an existing winForms application with multiple projects in the solution. I have the project built and running in debug mode. I can stop at breakpoints in some projects but, I am unable to hit the breakpoints in other projects specifically my project that is of type class library.
What I have done thus far:
- I have deleted all debug and release folders,
- I have deleted the obj folder, and have rebuilt the solution afterwards.
- I have restarted the VS2008 IDE.
- I have restarted my computer.
- I checked the Configuration Manager for the solution to ensure that my class project is included in the debug build, and it is.
- I have checked the debug/modules for dll, although I am not trying to reference a dll.
Furthermore, I have followed the troubleshooting steps outlined in the SO posts:
Some of these posts are:
All of the posts I have read have been very informative, but none of the suggested solutions have fit my specific needs. Please let me know if more information is warranted. I have more links I can provide as references to what has not worked. As well as additional steps I have taken to attempt to solve this issue.
I am posting this follow-up to keep everyone aprised. I followed @Hans @ suggestion to call the project file in question.
I placed a dim frm as form = new ProjectInQuestion.FormInQuestion
this now has the assembly loading in the debug–> Windows->Modules
The new problem is more perplexing than my original issue. My breakpoints look fine, but are being skipped. There are no error evident at the breakpoint.
