    I can't step into the source code that I already put into the project

    I have a certain breakpoint set that I want to see what happens inside that method.
    When I press F11, the line is skipped forward to the next line and not stepped into.
    What can be done?
    Thanks
    Jack

    It might be that your solution is out of sync. Try doing a full rebuild of the solution.
    It might also be that you run optimized code (a release build with debug symbols).
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    You should be able to turn off optimization in your project. The exact method will be different depending on what version of Visual Studio you are running.
