Debugger does not stop on breakpoint

android

#1

Installed Visual Studio-code with Nativescript on Windows 10.
When setting a breakpoint and running the debugger, it doesn’t stop. The installation trace in the output window is shown below.
If the program contains an error, the debugger gives a warning and the output windows shows a stack trace.

Output trace:

NativeScript Debugger started

To start debugging, open the following URL in Chrome:
chrome-devtools://devtools/bundled/inspector.html?experiments=true&ws=localhost:40000

If you see this, your debugger is connected to Chrome not VS Code. Are you trying to debug the app from command line?


#3

No, I use the debug menu of Visual Studio. I tried both the triangle icon and the start debug item in the debug submenu. When running, i can stop debugging with the red square icon. The other debugging icons are grey.

I also opened chrome at the address specified, but I don’t see something happening.


#4

Issue is solved. In Visual Studio Code File/Preferences/Extensions: load Debugger for Chrome
