Debugging .net usercontrols

After adding custom .net usercontrols to your umbraco site, you might want to debug them.

Only thing you need to do is attach to the w3wp.exe process with visual studio.


Just Tools/Attach to process or ctr+alt+p, then select w3wp and hit attach.

    Hello Tim,
    This tip seems a bit sparse of details.

    Can I debug a .NET usercontrol on a remote umbraco site, or is this for a site running in Visual Studio or a site running locally via IIS?

    If you could provide some more detailed steps for this, I would appreciate it.

    Hi Warren,

    This works with a umbraco site running locally
