Breakpoint Properties Dialog Box

Visual Studio .NET 2003

To open the Breakpoint Properties dialog box, click the Properties button on the Breakpoints window or right-click on a breakpoint within the Breakpoint window or in the text editor, then choose the Breakpoint Properties command from the shortcut menu.

With this dialog box, you can edit the properties that define the breakpoint. When this dialog box opens, you will see one or more tabs. One tab will be active, depending on the type of breakpoint you are editing. The following table shows the tabs in the Breakpoint Properties dialog box.

To See
Set properties for a breakpoint on a function at the beginning of the function or at an offset from the beginning Function, Breakpoint Properties Dialog Box
Set properties for a breakpoint on a source file File, Breakpoint Properties Dialog Box
Set properties for a breakpoint on a memory location Address, Breakpoint Properties Dialog Box
Set properties for a breakpoint on a variable Data, Breakpoint Properties Dialog Box

Below the tabs, you will see the following buttons:

Condition
By default, execution of your program breaks every time the breakpoint is hit. A breakpoint may have a condition that will be tested each time the breakpoint is hit. If the condition is satisfied, your program breaks. Otherwise, execution continues. Choose this button to edit the condition or specify a new condition in the Breakpoint Condition dialog box. For more information, see Condition.
Hit Count
By default, execution of your program breaks every time the breakpoint is hit. A breakpoint can have a specified hit count property. In that case, execution breaks only if the hit count has a specified value. The hit count is the number of times the breakpoint is hit. Choose Hit Count to edit the hit count property or specify a new hit count in the Breakpoint Hit Count dialog box. For more information, see Hit Count.
