One of my reader asked how to debug C# code using Visual Studio Code. This blog post provides simple step by step guide to C# debugging in Visua Studio Code. In short – C# extension for Visual Studio Code must be installed. Works on Windows, Linux and Apple.
- Open extensions by clicking on last icon of icons pane in left:
- After installing C# extension Visual Studio Code asks if it can reload window to activate the extension.
- Check output window and wait until all packages are downloaded.
- Set break-point somewhere in code and click green arrow on toolbar after DEBUG
Screenshot above shows that there are some familiar things from Visual Studio available: Variables, watch, and callstack panes. Debug console shows debug messages by debugger and code.
