The IDE debugger will pause when it reaches a line with a breakpoint set.
You can set a breakpoint either through the menu, the toolbar, or by moving the mouse cursor to the left margin of a line and left-clicking. You can only set a breakpoint on an executable line (i.e., not on a blank line, comment, label, etc.),
You can define conditional breakpoints by specifying the number of iterations before the breakpoint is triggered, and/or define a conditional expression that must be true before the breakpoint is triggered. After setting the breakpoint, enter the conditions either by right-clicking on the breakpoint and selecting "Break >=" (to set the minimum number of iterations), or "Condition" (to set the conditional expression). You can also select the Breakpoint window and double-click on the "Break >=" or "Condition" columns to edit or modify the conditions.
You can temporarily disable a breakpoint (without deleting it) by right-clicking on the breakpoint and selecting "Enable/Disable Breakpoint". You can disable all breakpoints by clicking on the Debug menu and selecting "Disable All Breakpoints".
The breakpoint window has a toolbar, with the following buttons:
|New||Restore the original values for the breakpoints list|
|Open||Add the contents of a file to the breakpoints list|
|Save||Save the current breakpoints list to a file|
|Apply||Replace the original values with the modified breakpoints list|
|Print the current breakpoints list|
|Cut||Copy the highlighted selection to the clipboard and delete it from the breakpoints|
|Copy||Copy the highlighted selection to the clipboard|
|Paste||Copy the contents of the clipboard to the current cursor location|
|Delete||Delete the highlighted selection (or the character at the cursor location if no selection)|
|Undo||Undo the last edit|
|Redo||Restore the last Undo|
|Find||Search for text|
|Help||Display the online help|
The debugger will automatically save breakpoints (the current batch file name + ".bp"), and reload them the next time the batch file is loaded in the debugger.
