B.3.3. Auto_Set_Breaks group

The Auto_Set_Breaks group contains third-level groups giving details of the breakpoints that are set automatically for the project. These breakpoints are set as soon as a symbol is matched, or on any load if there is no specified symbol. You can set these breakpoints at exit points or on special error handlers.

A Default breakpoint is provided for you to use. However, you can create new breakpoints with more meaningful names.

Use a third-level group for each breakpoint. You can create a new group, for example MY_BREAK_1, to store details of a personalized breakpoint. To do this, right-click on the Default group and select Make New... from the menu. You can then specify a name for the new group.

Where you want to modify an existing breakpoint, select Make Copy... from the menu. This provides starting values that can then be customized as required.

You can prompt to set selected breakpoints from the list when the project image is loaded.

Table B.6 describes the settings available in the Auto_Set_Breaks group.
