Starting the Debugger Session

Before debugging

  1. Configure the debugger.

  2. Set the breakpoints in the source code.

  3. If necessary, create or modify the corresponding Run/Debug configuration.

The debug session starts with the selected run/debug configuration. Note that several debug processes can be launched simultaneously.

Start debugging an application

  • Select the run/debug configuration to execute, and then do one of the following:

    • Click icons toolwindows toolWindowRun svg icon in the left gutter, and then choose icons actions startDebugger svg.

    • Click icons actions startDebugger svg on the toolbar.

    • From the main menu, go to Run | Debug 'selected configuration'.

    • Press Shift+F9.

  • Press Shift+Alt+F9, select the configuration from the list, and press Enter.

Note that after you've launched a debug session, the the Debug button icon that marks the Debug Tool Window toggles to the Active Debugger icon to indicate that the debugging process is active.
