How to debug in Visual Studio where there is a timespan feature specified

Kalpana 286 Reputation points


I am writing a C# wpf app, and there are calls for timers in it and the timer has a timespan feature in it, for example. These timespans's are specified as TimeSpan.FromHours(1).
How do I debug these lines to see if the method below it gets executed, I tried changing my system's time, but it did not work

Please advice.

    The Debuger can jump to the specified Code line,
    Way One: You can drag and drop yellow arrows to make specific statements execute or not.

    Way Two:An easier way to jump to the target row is to hover the mouse pointer over the target row and see the right arrow icon with a green vertical bar. Hold down the CTRL key and click the left mouse button to move the yellow debugging arrow over. Then click Debug Next or F5 to run directly on the specified row.

    You wait for the time period to expire.
    If you want that to occur much sooner, break into your code where the period is set and set it to a lower value - which you can probably do by executing an alternative time period setting using the VS Immediate debug window.
