Unable to debug Silverlight application

by dsoltesz 19. May 2010 16:29 >

I was recently working on a silveright application when I suddenly noticed that my breakpoints were not being hit.  It took me a little while to figure out what was going on. 

To enable silverlight debugging make sure.

1.  <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0"/>

2. Go to your .Web project file in solution explorer, right click and select Property -> click the Web tab -> at the bottom you'll see the Debuggers section, make sure ASP.NET and Silverlight are checked.

Hope this saves some of you some time.
