This project is read-only.

In general there are more ways to debug the application. Most programmers prefer to use Visual Studio's debugging tool, but to make things easier to those without IDE, PresentationAid has small debug output already built in. All you need to do, is to open the Advanced settings and check the "Activate Debug mode" option. This will add another tab to the main menu (top of the application) and you can observe the application events live. To keep the memory footprint of the application small as possible, only higher level events are outputted to the built in console.

Detailed trace output

So, if you need a more detailed report of what is going on, it is recommended to use NLog to watch output of the application. PresentationAid has built in logger, which sends output to NLog and from there you can redirect it anywhere you want. All you need is a log viewer program and you can find many of those on the internet. Links to Sentinel and Log2Console are added on the bottom of this page.

Classic debugging

If you are modifying the application, the best way way to debug will always be with Visual Studio debugger. Place breakpoints and follow the code execution to the point of crash. Read more about debugging in Visual Studio on MSDN. If you are using another IDE, check it's documentation for information about debugging.
