Debugger options

These options modify the behavior of the debugger.

Debugger options
Figure 39.36:  Debugger options
Enable debugger (User)

By default the debugger is disabled unless this option, which can also be modified through the menu item »Debugger«-»Enable debugger«, is activated.

If a test is interrupted by a breakpoint or be pressing the "Pause" button, the debugger is activated automatically. Similarly, starting a test run with "Step in" or "Step over" will activate the debugger for the duration of that test run.

Always open debugger window (User)

When test execution is halted and the debugger entered QF-Test can optionally open a separate window for the debugger. This option determines whether debugging should happen in a separate window or the normal test suite window.

Show variable bindings automatically (User)

When test execution is halted and the debugger entered QF-Test can display the current variable bindings in the workbench window. If this option is active the variables are shown automatically each time a test run first enters the debugger. Alternatively the variables can be viewed in the debugger window or shown in the workbench window via the menu »Debugger«-»Show variables«.

Automatic breaks (User)

These options describe the situations in which execution of a test will be suspended and the debugger entered:

Break on uncaught exception
The debugger will break if an exception is thrown that will not be handled by a 'Catch' node.
Break on error
The debugger will break if an error occurs.
Break on warning
The debugger will break if a warning occurs.
