Debugging WebService from SmartDeviceApplication problem


R

Ron Lemire

Hi,

I cannot step into my WebService method even though a breakpoint has been
set.
I'm definitely using a Debug Build and not a Release Build of the
WebService.
The WebService is the default WebService with the HelloWorld WebMethod.

When debugging starts the WebService breakpoint is a solid red circle with a
white '?' within the circle.
The tooltip reads "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have
been loaded for this document."

The problem client is a PocketPC SmartDeviceApplication. Both the emulator
Deployment and device Deployment have the same behavior.
If I use a .NET Framework Windows Application client I am able to step into
the same WebService.
It's only the .NET CompactFramework clients that have the problem.

Has anyone else had the same problem?
Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Thanks...Ron Lemire

You need to launch web service project in debug mode in a separate IDE
instance. WHen you do so, make sure that breakpoints are being hit if you
use automatic web service test page links. If that works, there is no way
the device requests will miss the debugger
