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.

Stepping through the program

  • Use the buttons in the stepping toolbar of the Debug tool window.

  • On the main Run menu, or on the editor's context menu, choose one of the stepping commands

  • Use the keyboard shortcuts.

Tips and tricks

  • The Force Step Over icons debugger actions force step over svg, Force Step Into icons actions traceInto svg, and Force Run to Cursor icons actions runToCursor svg commands allow you to do similar actions but they ignore existing breakpoints on the way.
