I just experienced the infamous “The breakpoint will not currently be hit”. After reading several posts in various websites in reference to this issue, I found few solutions which I thought of sharing :
Debug is disable
<%@ Page Language=”C#” MasterPageFile=”~/MainMasterPage.master” AutoEventWireup=”true” CodeFile=”Facility.aspx.cs” Inherits=”_Facility” debug=”false”%>
Debug is enable
<%@ Page Language=”C#” MasterPageFile=”~/MainMasterPage.master” AutoEventWireup=”true” CodeFile=”Facility.aspx.cs” Inherits=”_Facility” debug=”true”%>
Received a comment from Eric Long with an other solution: click here .
