Controlling debug execution

The debug execution controls are superceded by breakpoints. For example, if you attempt to step over a function and the program hits a breakpoint, it pauses, regardless of whether the function is completed. You can control your debug execution in various ways, but they all rely on a core set of debug controls.

To control a debug execution:

  1. In the Debug view, select a thread.
  2. To control the debug session, click:
    • Run > Resume
    • Run > Suspend
    • Run > Terminate
    • Run > Disconnect
    • Run > Remove All Terminated Launches
    • Run > Restart
