Named Breakpoints

IntelliJ IDEA makes it possible to add a name or a short description to a breakpoint to facilitate search.

In this section:

Editing description of a breakpoint

To add/change description of a breakpoint

  1. Open the Breakpoints dialog.
  2. Right-click a breakpoint you are interested in.
  3. On the context menu, choose Edit description.
  4. In the Edit Description dialog box, type the desired description.

The specified description shows in italic next to the address of a breakpoint in the Breakpoints dialog:

breakpoint_description

Searching for a breakpoint using its name

To search for a breakpoint by name

  1. Open the Breakpoints dialog.
  2. Start typing the name (description) of the desired breakpoint:
    breakpoint_search

    The breakpoint with the matching description gets the focus.
