The search function can match the specified string to the contents of all columns or of a specified column.

To view breakpoints that match a specified string

  • In the Search box, perform one of the following actions:

    • Type your search string in the Search box and press ENTER.

      - or -

    • Click the Search drop-down list and select a string from the list of previous search strings.

  • To limit the search to a specified column, click the In Column drop-down list and then click the name of the column that you want to search in.

To view all breakpoints after a search

  • In the Search box, select and delete the search string and then press ENTER.
