Debugger Tips, Tricks and Tools #8

Noisy breakpoints!

Ok this feature has been around for a long time, but it's really almost impossible to discover on your own.  Scott Nonnenberg asked me to remind him out to do this yesterday and I thought HEY good idea for a tip!  Here's what you do:

  1. Open the Windows Control Panel
  2. If you are in Category View choose "Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices", then "Change the sound scheme"
  3. If you are in Classic View choose "Sounds and Audio Devices", then choose the "Sounds" tab.
  4. In the "Program events" listbox scroll down to "Microsoft Development Environment"
  5. Change the "Breakpoint Hit" event to the sound of your choice.
