Historical Debugging (Intellitrace) on Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Part-2

In the first post I have explained how historical debugging will going to work and how we can enable the historical debugging. In this blog post I am going to take one real time scenario and then we will see the How historical debugging will work. Here I have selected the second option for Intellitrace - Track event and call Information. I am going to check historical debugging with my asp.net application so following is a simple code for that.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace Blogging
{
 public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
 {
     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
     {
         Response.Write("This is a page load event");
         ThrowHistoricalException();
     
     }
     public void ThrowHistoricalException()
     {
         throw new Exception("Historical Deubgging");
     }

 }
}

In above code you can see its very simple We are printing one statement on in page load event with Response.Write and then it will call a new method called ThrowHistoricalDebugging. Where it will throw a new exception. Now all ready to check let press F5 to debug this thing. I have putted the break point over Response.Write statement so We can trace everything.  so now debugging starts at my break point Just like below

HistoricalDebuggingBreakPoint

Now let’ proceed the things further now lets step in with the pressing F10 It will call ThrowHistoricalException and Here you can see the exception like following.

HistoricalDebuggingException

As You can see now the Exception thrown. Now lets move to IntelliTrace window what’s are information there.

IntelliTraceWindow

As you can see whole event and method trace information here in Intellitrace windows. Also you can see the A reviwnd Icon there so on clicking on that you can got the specific events and restart debugging. Now I have clicked on Page_load event and Now its going to the page_load event statement where the exception is thrown. Just like below.

IntellitraceRewind

Also you can see there button given to move updown and other stuff to move your current point up and down. I have click move up and You can see in below image its moving up.

IntelliTraceUp

That’s it. As you can see its very easy to move up down and go back to location of code wherever you want with historical debugging. So now you can easily see what happens when your tester is reproducing the bugs. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more.. Happy Programming.

I have written a couple of blog post about Entity framework code first migration earlier for Entity framework 6.0.

This post will cover a basic scenario where we are going to create the database with existing ASP.NET Identity migration and then we are going to create a new model and have that migration applied in the database.

How to use Entity Framework Migrations: Let’s get started, To demonstrate entity framework core migrations, I am going to create a sample asp.net core web application like following.



Once we select asp.net core application it will appear the following dialog.

Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC and RazorPDF

Update: I have written a new blog post about better approach to create a PDF with asp.net mvc- You can find that following location.- A Better Solution to create PDF with Rotativa and ASP.NET MVC
In this post we are going to learn how we can easily create PDF from ASP.Net application with the help of Razor PDF NuGet package.

About Razor PDF:
This NuGet package is created by Al Nyveldt It internally uses ITextSharp an open source PDF convertor library. RazorPDF uses Razor View engine to create iTextXML which is in tern used to produce PDF file. You can get more information about that at below link.

Example(Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC):
So what we are we waiting for ? Let’s create a simple example. To create example first thing we need to a create and ASP.Net MVC application.
