debugging in vb.net and refresh screen

Post by diana »

im using Visual studio 2008 vb.net and developing and working with office 2007.

When I debug and step through the code the Word window goes blank all white (Not Responding) on the title bar
see screen capture
this happens regardless of office app im debugging eg Word, Excel

someone mentioned there is window refresh application
does anyone know about this tool? or know how I can get my office application windows to display what is occuring in my app?

VB6.0 allowed you to debug and see "live" the code interacting with the different applications.
VBA allowed you to debug and see "live" the code results.


many thanks

The Word Application object has a ScreenRefresh method. So if you have an object appWord of type Word.Application, you could try

appWord.ScreenRefresh

No idea whether it'll work. I don't use VB.NET.
Best wishes,
