Return focus to IDE in VS 2008 in step by step mode. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to know if it's possible to return focus to IDE when you are debugging step by step with F10, and the focus is in the console for example after an scanf. I would like to introduce the data and after press enter return focus to IDE automatically, not using the mouse. Thank you.

  • Hi FranAaaa,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    As far as I know, we often use the focus method to set input focus to the control in WindForm app. So I’m afraid that it doesn’t have this feature when you debug app with Step by Step (F10).

    You could submit this feature request: http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio. The Visual Studio product team is listening to user voice there. You can send your idea there and people can vote. If you submit this suggestion, I hope you could post that link here, I will vote it. Thanks for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
