ConditionSelect this check box and specify a condition for hitting a breakpoint in the text field.

A condition is a Boolean expression.

This expression should be valid at the line where the breakpoint is set, and is evaluated every time the breakpoint is reached. If the evaluation result is true, user-selected actions are performed.

If evaluation result is true, user-selected actions are performed.

If the result is false, the breakpoint does not produce any effect. If the Debugger cannot evaluate the expression, it displays the Condition evaluation error message. You can select whether you would like to stop at this breakpoint or ignore it.
