Breakpoints Icons and Statuses

On this page:

Basics

When a breakpoint is set, the editor displays a breakpoint icon in the gutter area to the left of the affected source code. A breakpoint icon denotes status of a breakpoint, and provides useful information about its type, location, and action.

The icons serve as convenient shortcuts for managing breakpoints. Clicking an icon removes the breakpoint. Successive use of Alt - click on an icon toggles its state between enabled and disabled. The settings of a breakpoint are shown in a tooltip when a mouse pointer hovers over a breakpoint icon in the gutter area of the editor.

Breakpoint states and icons

The table below summarizes the possible breakpoint states:

When the button /help/img/idea/2017.1/debug_mute_breakpoints.png is pressed in the toolbar of the Debug tool window, all the breakpoints in a project are muted, and their icons become grey: /help/img/idea/2017.1/muted_breakpoint.png.
