    Line numbers

    I just have a quick question, is there a way to display the line numbers in the area where you write your code in Visual C++ 2005? When there is an error after I compile it gives you the line number but aside from counting them there doesn't seem to be an easy way to figure out which line has the issue.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Double-click on the error message. That will take you directly to the line.
