Using Temporary breakpoint in Visual Studio 2022

Temporary breakpoint in Visual Studio 2022 allows you to set a breakpoint that will hit only once. Once hit, Visual Studio deletes it automatically. A breakpoint notifies the Visual Studio debugger where and when to pause the execution of the program. Using breakpoint is one of the most common and basic steps to start debugging for your code. Along with Temporary Breakpoint, Visual Studio 2022 introduced a great addition called Dependent breakpoint

A temporary breakpoint can save time when you just wanted to check if the breakpoint is hitting or not to validate the condition. If you don’t want to check the subsequent hits, a Temporary breakpoint would be a great choice.
