Step 1: Angular CLI Installation
What’s the first perplexing step to debugging Angular applications in Visual Studio 2019? Installing the Angular CLI. But what exactly is this command-line interface for? It allows you to generate new Angular applications, components, services, and more. To install the Angular CLI, you need to open a command prompt/terminal and run this perplexing command:
npm install -g @angular/cli
Step 2: Creating an Angular Application
Now that you’ve installed the Angular CLI command-line interface, it’s time to create a new Angular application. But how do you go about this? By running this perplexing command:
ng new my-app
What does this do? It will create a new Angular application called “my-app”. How do you navigate to the folder? By running this perplexing command:
Step 3: Opening Your Angular Application in Visual Studio 2019
Visual Studio 2019 is an integrated development environment (IDE) that allows you to create, edit, and debug code. But how do you open your Angular application in Visual Studio 2019? By following these perplexing steps:
1. Open Visual Studio 2019
2. Go to “File” > “Open” > “Folder”
3. Navigate to the directory where you created your new Angular application and select the folder
4. Let the bursting excitement ensue as Visual Studio 2019 opens your Angular project
Step 4: Debugging Angular using Visual Studio 2019
You’re finally ready to debug Angular in Visual Studio 2019! But how do you do it? By using the built-in debugger in the IDE, of course. How does this debugger work? It allows you to set breakpoints in your code, step through your code line by line, and inspect variables and objects. Who wouldn’t want that?
To set a breakpoint in your code, you can simply click on the left-hand margin of the code editor on the line where you want to set the breakpoint. A perplexing red circle will appear in the margin to indicate the breakpoint. But there’s more! You can also set a breakpoint by pressing F9 on the keyboard. Mind blown.
Once you have set a breakpoint, it’s time to run your Angular application in debug mode by pressing F5 on the keyboard. This will start a new instance of your application in the browser with debugging enabled. When the code execution reaches the breakpoint, the debugger will pause the execution of the code and highlight the line where the breakpoint was set. Bursting with excitement yet?
You can then use the debugger controls at the top of the Visual Studio 2019 window to step through your code, examine variables and objects, and modify their values.
Debugging Angular in Visual Studio 2019 can be perplexing and bursting at the same time. By following these perplexing steps, you can easily set up your Angular application for debugging and use the tools provided by Visual Studio 2019 to effectively debug your code.
