.NET/Visual Studio: disable “Step over properties and operators” – one of the settings I always change for a new Visual Studio Installation

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/07/25

Boy I wish Visual Studio had a “Step into first property or operator” command. You can only do this through the context menu, and that is awfully cumbersome to use.

Just look at the context menu at the end of the post to see why.

Luckily, the option below it is “Step over properties and operators”, which you can easily disable. I usually have it disabled, so for me it is the way to temporarily enable it when I want to skip properties and operators.

If you don’t then you get this message when tracing into properties (or operators):

[Microsoft Visual Studio]
Your step-into request resulted in an automatic step-over of a property or operator.
This behavior can be overridden in the context menu for the line being executed by choosing 'Step Into Specific' or by unchecking the option 'Step over properties and operators'.
Do you want to continue being notified when an automatic step-over happens?
[Yes] [No]
