Figure 5.31. Break/Tracepoints menu

Break/Tracepoints menu

The Break/Tracepoints menu includes options to edit and manage your breakpoints:


Removes the breakpoint highlighted in the Break/Tracepoints pane. This is the same as double-clicking on the chosen breakpoint.


This option changes the status of a breakpoint.

Select Disable to disable a breakpoint you have set. This changes to Enable so that you can enable a breakpoint that has been disabled.

Select, or unselect, the check box in the Break/Tracepoints pane to change the status in the same way.

Reset PassCounters/Then-Enables

Resets specific qualifiers for a given breakpoint and then re-enables it ready for triggering as appropriate.


Displays an information box giving details of the selected breakpoint.

Break/Tracepoint Favorites...

Displays the Favorites Chooser/Editor where you can edit or delete entries, or select from your favorites to set a breakpoint.

Show Code

The cursor moves to the location of the breakpoint in the appropriate code view:

  • an open blue pointer marks the location in source-level view

  • a filled blue pointer marks the location in disassembly-level view.

Other options might be available. For example when debugging multithreaded applications right-click on the breakpoint Command and use Thread List... to examine thread-specific breakpoints.
