I'm using VS2013 for developing SharePoint Hosted App against a 365 development site. The VS debugger tool doesn't hit anymore my breakpoints. It used to the day before. I have made many tests,

  • On the "Hello World" sample (with a breakpoint on a simple alert()).
  • On two different desktops.

Can someone help me to solve that question ?

Sounds like you accidentally changed the code in such a way that its not running to the line you have your break point at. If you edit the post with your code I can look at it for you.

Thanks Mike. I tried again this morning on my sharepoint basic app (OOB) and it's now debugging. Also on my more complex app. I don't understand why. Seems not to be relied on code. May be relied on the linked between VS and browsers ? – Stephan Bazin Mar 10 '14 at 18:16
VS is a great tool, but it does have some strange stuff you have to watch out for. I've had to completely recreate projects because it seems to cache certain things that I can't circumnavigate. Glad it all worked out. – mike.fisher Mar 10 '14 at 22:05
You are right. In fact, for now, debug issue is coming back. I'm unable to hit breakpoints anymore. Mistery... – Stephan Bazin Mar 17 '14 at 13:19
Its unfortunate that you're getting these issues with VS2013, '13 is a HUGE improvement on '12 as far as performance goes. Occasionally when I do run into issues like this and I can determine 100% it isn't my fault then usually (emph. usually) closing and reopening VS resolves it. – mike.fisher Mar 17 '14 at 16:24
