Breakpoints panel

You can find a list of all the breakpoints that you have set in your solution in the Breakpoints panel. This panel is placed on docks with the Locals panel in the left bottom corner of the window by default.

The Breakpoints panel

The Breakpoints panel is automatically opened when you start debugging, but you can yo open it manually:

  • from the Main Menu: Debug ⇒ Windows ⇒ Breakpoints,
  • using the Windows button on the Debug toolbar,
  • by pressing the Ctrl+Alt+B hotkey.

In the Breakpoints panel you can see all the data related to the breakpoints:

  • Name — the name of the breakpoint. Usually, it is equal to the line where the breakpoint is set.
  • Language — the language of the code where the breakpoint is set,
  • File — the file that contains the breakpoint.

All the conditions of hitting the breakpoints are also displayed in this panel:

  • Labels — the label of the breakpoint, it is used to sort and filter the list of breakpoints,
  • Condition — when and where the breakpoint executes,
  • Hit Count — how many times the breakpoint will be hit,
  • Filter — the filters for hitting the breakpoints based on a thread, process, and / or machine,
  • When Hit — what happens with the debugging process when it reaches the breakpoint,
  • Function — the specific function that stops the debugging with the help of the breakpoint,
  • Address — the specific address that stops the debugging with the help of the breakpoint,
  • Data — the specific data that stops the debugging with the help of the breakpoint,
  • Process — the specific process that stops the debugging with the help of the breakpoint.

Currently, the managing of the conditions is unavailable.

You can set the displaying of only whose columns that you need right now. Click on the Columns button and select the necessary ones.
