How to: Manage Breakpoints from the Development Environment

You can view, set, enable, disable, or delete breakpoints on lines of code in the C/AL Editor in the development environment. The breakpoints that you set, enable, disable, or delete in the C/AL Editor are displayed in the code viewer in the debugger and in the debugger breakpoint list.

You cannot manage breaks on the next statement, breaks on errors, or breaks on record changes from the development environment. You must manage these breaks from the debugger.

If you set a breakpoint from the debugger, then it is not displayed in the C/AL Editor. If you enable, disable, or delete a breakpoint from the debugger, that change is not displayed in the C/AL Editor until you open the editor again.

To view breakpoints in the development environment

  1. In the development environment, on the Tools menu, choose Object Designer.

  2. In Object Designer, select the object that you want to debug, and then choose Design. If the object is not a codeunit, then on the View menu, choose C/AL Code.

    In the C/AL Editor, breakpoints are displayed in the margin. An enabled breakpoint is identified by a red dot. A disabled breakpoint is identified by an unfilled red circle.

To set breakpoints from the development environment

  1. In the C/AL Editor, place the cursor on the line of code on which you want to set a breakpoint.

  2. On the Tools menu, point to Debugger, and then choose Toggle Breakpoint. A red dot is displayed in the margin, and the breakpoint is immediately enabled.

To enable breakpoints from the development environment

  1. In the C/AL Editor, place the cursor on the line of code that has a disabled breakpoint.

  2. On the Tools menu, point to Debugger, and then choose Toggle Breakpoint. The red unfilled circle disappears, and the breakpoint is immediately deleted.

To disable breakpoints from the development environment

  1. In the C/AL Editor, place the cursor on the line of code that has an enabled breakpoint.

  2. On the Tools menu, point to Debugger, and then choose Toggle Breakpoint. The red dot changes to a red unfilled circle, and the breakpoint is immediately disabled.

To delete breakpoints from the development environment
