PyCharm 2024.1 Help


The Frames pane of the Threads&Variables tab enables you to gain access to the list of threads of your application.

Frames pane

To examine a thread, select it from the list on top of the pane. The status and type of a thread is indicated by a special icon and a textual note next to the thread's name. For each thread, you can view the stack frame, examine frames, navigate between frames, and automatically jump to a frame's source code in the editor.

To examine the values stored in a frame, use the Variables pane of the Debug tool window.

Thread Icons

Icons near each thread indicate the status of the thread:



Current thread

The current thread in suspended state.

Running thread

An active thread.

Thread at breakpoint

The thread that has hit the current breakpoint.

Suspended thread

A suspended thread. Threads are marked as suspended when they were paused by the debugger.

Frozen thread

A frozen thread. Threads are marked as frozen when they were manually paused.
