Stopping application RRS feed

  • Question

  • User928623293 posted

    Using Asp .Net Web forms VS 2015. Sql Server .mdf database. I have 5 day long career in Web programming.

    When I'm testing in the VS IDE, after I close the web page in the browse, I notice the application/Debugger is still running and I have to click the the stop button. Am I suppose to (or can I) stop the application when the browser tab closes.   Also, Is there some cleanup I should do because I'm starting to get Out of Memory Error.

    If you are debugging, yes, pressing the stop button will stop the application.

    If you are getting out of memory exceptions you have a bug of some kind.  We can't tell you what it is without seeing the code that causes it.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I understand that pressing the stop button in the IDE will stop the app.  But what I want to know is there some way that when I close the Web Page (click on the "X" on the tab) that it also stops the debugger.  Not use to having to manually stop the debugger.  I've been a VB programmer for years and when you close the app the debugger stops automatically.  I kept forgetting to press the stop button.

    As for the out of memory problem, here is my Web.config and my startup page,

    " But what I want to know is there some way that when I close the Web Page (click on the "X" on the tab) that it also stops the debugger."

    How it behaves is how it behaves.  You can't change that.  It's not hard to get used to pressing the stop button.

    Yeah, it's not a matter of it being hard, just after so many years of VB programming where when you close the app the debugger stops too, it just doesn't come natural.  Was hoping there was some setting or command.  But if that's the way it is then I'll just have to get use to it.  

    Thanks for the reply.

    Hi wes4dbt@sbcglobal.net,

    As far as I know, closing the tab of your debugging page doesn't always stop the application.

    What causes the application to stop is  closing the whole browser.

    If you  have opened a new page(even a blank page) when you debug,  when you close your debugging page,the application will not stop.

    You should close the browser where you open your debugging page.

    Best regards,

    Ackerly Xu
