    Speed differences whilst inside the IDE

    How much difference in execution speed am i likely to see between debugging in the IDE and running as a standalone program.

    Is this likely to be significant or slight ?

    is there anyway to test execution speed of a method within the IDE ?

    it's pretty significant. you can test execution speed with a simple comparison of DateTime objects.

    thanks Bling.

    i am seeing significant delay between my mouseclick and the update on the picturebox if i go a little wild and try to click randomly around the place. is this possibly the IDE slowdown or should i start looking at my code alittle more ?

    everything gets to the screen eventually but it is like it is queue'd and has a noticable delay there.

    well, easiest way to find out is to try running without the debugger.

    also, remember that windows only has 1 thread to draw all elements on the screen, so yes there is a queue of things it needs to process.
