IDE Debug Mode

   

 

After you have created your project, you may want to debug it.  FinalBuilder allows you to step one action at a time through your project, to use breakpoints to pause the run at particular points, and to view and edit the values of variables when the  run is paused.  You can also make use of the live logging view of the log when debugging.

 

How to Add and Remove Breakpoints

 

Right click on an action and choose Breakpoint.
Press F5 (or F9, if using "Microsoft Style" key bindings)
Choose Breakpoint from the action menu.
Click in the gutter to the left of the action

Notice that the List Iterator action has a breakpoint. The run will pause when it reaches this List Iterator action.
