Setting Breakpoints with the Breakpoints Window

The Breakpoints window allows you to create, remove and modify breakpoints independent from the Source or Assembler window.

  1. To access these features, right-click a line.

    The context-menu is opened.

  2. Select Create…

    The Create Breakpoint dialog box is opened.

  3. Enter a breakpoint address or a debug symbol that evaluates to an address and specify additional parameters such as skip count, conditions, etc.
  4. Switch to the Data tab to specify data breakpoints, including Port IO breakpoints.
  5. Switch to the Platform tab to set breakpoints on architectural events of the processor or platform. This can be useful to halt target's execution based on conditions that can't be expressed through code or data breakpoints.
