Stepping Through the Program
When a breakpoint is reached the Debug tool window becomes active and enables you to get control over the program's execution. For this purpose, you can use the menu commands, or the icons on the stepping toolbar of in the Debug tool window.
Each stepping action advances the execution point to the next execution location, depending on the action you choose.
