Edit & Continue feature for Web Application Projects (WAPs)

 

There is Edit & Continue functionality available for WAPs... Although we have disabled it by default as it may potentially have debug performance impact due to the fact that we have to recycle the ASP.NEt Web Server process every time for this functionality to work...

 

Although I think the performance hit is not as big to let go of not using the feature...  I would recommend that you go and try it out by checking the Edit & Continue checkbox in your Web section of Property Pages as below:

But also do note that this property in addition to your tools options Edit & Continue should be checked otherwise the feature won't work...

Also note that if you are in web development profile you will have to check "Show all settings" in the bottom of the Tools--> Options windows within Visual Studio...

It doesn't work! Did you test this before you created the post?

Sorry that you are facing trouble... What VS version are you using? and which language VB/C#? Did you enable the Tools--> Options part coz without that it does not work...

Previous poster is correct. This does not work. I have edit and continue enabled in VS 2008 3.5 SP1 and app start even is not fired on subsequent debugging restarts. Using the built-in webdev.exe server.

Do note there are two settings one in Tools-->Options and other is in "Web" tab of the property pages... Did you try both...?
