VB6 IDE question (probably bonehead)
Okay, so I've been seeing an occasional weird thing happen in my VB6 IDE (yes, I have SP5). Sometimes, with no pattern I've yet been able to discern, it'll hang at a breakpoint. When it does this, it'll refuse to do any variant of Step or Run, whether I try to invoke those commands from the keyboard, menu, or toolbar buttons. The only thing I can do is end execution and try again.
I think your program crashed when you get the little green doohickey.
Reinstall VB. Some corrupt files probably.
You'd think so, but when there's no breakpoint, execution passes smoothly through that point. I'm only screwed if I want to inspect something using the debugger. (=
I have had some weirdness with the VB debugger. Specifically not being able to debug some code but normal execution works.
So may be inspecting something is what causes the problem? To get value of something debugger somtimes have to execute some code that very well could be unexpected at this point.
It's not the "break in class file" setting is it?
If you do the following things a lot then VB can get VERY "squiffy" (it's better on NT family than 9x family)
Remember Sam, there are no boneheaded questions, just really boneheaded people. <g>

The green triangle indicates that the line it is next to has *called* the currently executing line (where you see the yellow arrow). Any line in the call stack would show the green triangle.
