About Breakpoints

Work with Code > Debug > Set Breakpoints > About Breakpoints

Breakpoints are markers in your code where you want to stop execution during debugging. The breakpoints window displays as a tab in the desktop panel beneath the main Editor window. If you cannot see the Breakpoints tab, you may need to add it to your desktop.

From the Breakpoints window, you can easily work with your breakpoints. You can select from the toolbars on the window itself, or you can use the right-click menu to access more functions.

To add the breakpoints tab to your desktop

Right click in the desktops area and select Desktop Panels | Breakpoints. The breakpoints tab displays.

To open the breakpoints window

In the desktop area, click the Breakpoints tab.

See the online help for more information about using Breakpoints.

 

Set a Breakpoint

  • Single-click in the Editor gutter to set or reset a breakpoint.
  • Press SHIFT+F5 to set or reset a breakpoint on the current line in the Editor.

Set Watches

Work with Code

Toad provides an intuitive and efficient way to write, run, and test your SQL and PL/SQL code. Toad supports efficient code management for a single developer or a whole team of developers.

 

About Watches

Work with Code > Debug > Set Watches > About Watches

Toad supports watches on implicit and explicit variables, including some complex data types such as explicitly and implicitly defined records, %ROWTYPE records, and cursors.

From the Watches window, you can easily work with your watches. You can select from the toolbars on the window itself, or you can use the right-click menu to access more functions.

Note: You can also hover your mouse over a variable to check the value without formally setting a watch.

To access the Watches window

Click the Watches tab in the Output area.

Note: If the watches tab is not visible, right-click and select Desktop Panels | Watches.

You can right-click a watch and select Export Watches, in addition to other options.

See the online help for more information about using watches.
