Yesterday I found out something new about Visual Studio. Documentation indicates that it has been with us since VS 2012 (maybe earlier) but I encountered it yesterday.
I was initially indignant at Visual Studio that it ‘made’ me do this by default instead of allowing me to set the breakpoint. Looks a step backward, but then I realized that it was likely some setting in my Dev Setup is not right. I haven’t had a chance to investigate what’s not right, and I used the above hack to resolve my current issues. If you know of a way that kicks VS2013 into enabling breakpoints in inline JS code, do let me know.
