I am trying to develop a native app for drawing svg on win32 canvas
using webkit's svg implementation. I have been trying to start a
project from scratch but I couldn't do so. I will appreciate if you
can write a few steps on How to create a new Visual studio project and
use webkit's functionality. I am pretty new to webkit so don't know
how it can be added to my project.

I tried debugging the Tools/WinLauncher and Tools/MiniBrowser with
breakpoints in SVGCircleElement and some other SVG related .cpp files.
They got hit when I debugged the WinLauncher app but didn't stop when
I was debugging MiniBrowser app.

Adam Roben has pointed out that I will have to attach the
WebKit2WebProcess to the debugger explicitly so I am going to try that

P.S : I tried including SVGclasses from the webcore directly in the
WinLauncher app but was not successful. When i add the statement

#include <WebCore/SVGCircleElement.h> in WinLauncher or MiniBrowser,
the programs do not compile and the error message leads to the file (
SVGCircleElement.h) where ENABLE ( SVG ) macro is use . It is disabled
and the source code is shown in gray color. How can I enable that or
how can I use Webcore classes direcltly in some app like MiniBrowser.
