Class Filters Dialog
The dialog box opens when you select the Class Filters check box and click the Browse button in the Breakpoints dialog box.
Use this dialog box to configure class filters that determine in which classes a specific breakpoint will be hit and in which classes this breakpoint should not be triggered.
|Class Filter|| In this area, configure the set of classes where the selected breakpoint must be hit. Specify the classes either explicitly or using a class pattern. |
A class pattern is a string that may start or end with an asterisk (*). The asterisk in a pattern means any number (including zero) of any characters. The patterns are matched against fully qualified class names.
The breakpoint behavior is different in relation to classes specified by their names or using class patterns.
A filter specified through a class name points at the class itself as well as at all its subclasses (i.e. the classes directly or indirectly extending this one).
A filter specified through a class pattern points at the classes whose fully qualified names match the pattern. The subclasses of such classes are selected only if their fully qualified names also match the specified pattern.
|Class Exclusion Filter|| In this area, configure the set of classes where hitting the selected breakpoint is suppressed. Specify the classes either explicitly or using a class pattern. |
