First of all we need to activate debugging mode. There are several ways
to do so. One of them is to set a breakpoint at the node where we want to
have a closer look. When the test is being executed and QF-Test comes to the break
point it will then
pause and switch into debugging mode. The pause button will then
Select a node and press [Ctrl-F8]
([⇧⌘-B] on macOS).
The breakpoint is indicated by a .
Select the 'Test-suite' node and press [Enter]
to start the test run.
Remove the breakpoint by pressing [Ctrl-F8]
([⇧⌘-B] on macOS) again.
Instead of using the keyboard shortcut [Ctrl-F8]
([⇧⌘-B] on macOS) you may
also set or unset a breakpoint by clicking the node and selecting the
»Debugger«-»Breakpoint on/off« menu item, or alternatively right-clicking the node and
selecting the »Breakpoint on/off« context
Again, you can see the little arrow, which now marks the next node to be executed,
called the current node. When entering debugging mode
QF-Test also navigates to the current node, in case it had not been visible,
and selects it, highlighting it blue.
The menu option
»Debugger«-»Clear all breakpoints« is useful to remove all breakpoints
set in your test-suite.
There is no limit to the number of breakpoints you can set in your
test-suite, but note that breakpoints are not saved with the test-suite.
