Where did they go?
I can no longer find where to toggle break on exceptions on or off
They're now managed like other breakpoints.
Use the "Run -> New Breakpoint" menu, or the "New Breakpoint" button in the Breakpoint Pad, and set the new breakpoint to break "When an exception ins thrown".
To remove or disable the exception breakpoint, use the Breakpoints Pad: View -> Debug Windows -> Breakpoints.
I would like to simply break when an exception is thrown. What do I enter to break on any exception at the line where the exception occurs?
@AaronBratcher if you break on the exception type "System.Exception" and its subclasses, you'll break on all exceptions
@mhutch WOW you saved my life. I am totally bald now having pulled all my hair out of this madness.
@mhutch (or anyone): Is there a way to create such an exception catchpoint that will persist for new apps I create? I am currently teaching a course on Xamarin.Forms, and for now, I've told students they have to set one of these up every single time they create a new app. Is there a better way?
Thanks for your help!
Thank you very mush @mhutch.
This is was a must-have feature that I extensively used in the Windows version of VS.
Is there any way to only break on uncaught exceptions? I don't want to stop the debugger every time an exception is thrown from a try/catch block.
