    Lightbulb C# Compile Time Debugging

    I am working on a c# program but after a while it become to complex and make some adjustment now getting some error such as not all path return a value, but didnt find which function do not return value. All of my friends function works correctly when they run alone but when I put all them together it gives error
    Is there any tool show me which path do not return value? or can I make compile time debugging?if I were to see which path become a problem instead of a class.
    Thanx you in advance.

    The error message should give you the line where the function ends. In the IDE, it should suffice to double-click it to get there.

    Once you have the function, how hard can it be? As long as your functions are of sane size (no more than, say, 100 lines), there can't be too many branches.

    My function unfortunately due to our bad programming practices include more than 100 thousands lines of code. Is there any way to see exactly which function ddo not return a value?

    The function is obvious. But there is AFAIK no way to know which path doesn't return a value.

    You have one function that is 100000s of lines long? Oh dear.

    Look, that's just a hopeless situation. What you have to do is split the function up into parts. Then you can reduce the region where the error occurs.

    Doesn't just double clicking on the error message take you to the line / function in question?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
