Step by Step Guide?

Oct 24, 2010 at 3:08 PM

I have C# and VB experience, but I have never used LUA. I wanted to use the VS IDE because I'm already familiar with it. However, I can't find how to use the LUA extension, which I installed successfully in VS2010 Professional. I can't find a step-by-step guide either. What should I do? Which are the steps to see a LUA solution in VS? Thank you.

What happens when you load a .lua file in visual (File > Open file) ?

I opened the .lua file but all the command are not active. (start debugging, step into ).

I' can't debug and view the result of the program.

Thank you for your help

The Lua add-on is only an Editor add-on.  It doesn't include a built-in debugger.  You'll be able to edit Lua files, but how the files get used, whether they are executed as Lua embedded in another application or using the stand-alone run time client, will be up to you and how you configure your project.
