Using Visual Studio, Keys like [F5], [CRTL+F5], [F10], [F11] will generate and execute your code. So any fat finger [F12], or any "reflexe" [F11] to enter the function definition, will excecute the code. Or a F5 in the Release mode instead of Debug.

Is there any Pannic Stop button to prevent your code for executing or to stop the generation process?

Or a way to prevent unexpected execution by having a prompt or something?

  • I just removed the AC on my Cisco switch twice in a row, to prevent execution. – Drag and Drop Sep 17 '18 at 14:22

    How about not building world-ending programs? Pressing F11 just enters step-by-step execution, so it’s entirely harmless...? – Daniel B Sep 17 '18 at 14:26
  • @DanielB, Yes harmless, I guess the heart attack and the switch unplug were unnecessary. Still a F5 on release mode instead of debug mode could be frightening. So maybe the question still stand for this one. – Drag and Drop Sep 17 '18 at 14:32
