Breakpoints View

The Breakpoints View lists all the breakpoints you currently have set in your workspace.

You can double-click a breakpoint to display its location in the editor (if applicable). You can also enable or disable breakpoints, delete them, add new ones, group them by working set, or set hit counts.

In the example shown below the Group by > Breakpoint Types and Sort by > Name option is turned on.

Breakpoints View

The breakpoints view displays details of the selected breakpoint and can be used to configure attributes of the selected breakpoint similar to the Breakpoint Properties... action. The orientation of the detail pane can be configured from the view drop down menu.
