Stepping Through the Program

When a breakpoint is reached or your program is suspended, the Debug tool window becomes active and enables you to get control over the program's execution. For this purpose, you can use the Run 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.

To step through the program

Do one of the following:

  • On the main menu, choose Run | <stepping command>
  • Use the keyboard shortcuts.
  • Use the buttons in the stepping toolbar of the Debug tool window.
