Enabling and disabling breakpoints

Breakpoints can be enabled and disabled as needed.  When a breakpoint is enabled, thread execution suspends before that line of code is executed.  When a breakpoint is disabled, thread execution is not suspended by the presence of the breakpoint.

To disable a breakpoint in the Breakpoints View :

  1. Open the breakpoint's context menu and select Disable , or deselect the breakpoint's checkbox.
  2. The breakpoint image will change to a white circle and its checkbox will be empty.

To disable a breakpoint in the marker bar of an editor:

  1. Open the breakpoint's context menu and select Disable Breakpoint.
  2. The breakpoint image will change to a white circle.

To enable the breakpoint in the Breakpoints View :
