Setting Breakpoint Actions and Options
Specify what Xcode does when a breakpoint is triggered with the breakpoint editor.
Each breakpoint type has specific properties that define it, such as condition and ignore count (for file line breakpoints), symbol name (for symbolic breakpoints), and exception type (for exception breakpoints). But all breakpoint types share two properties:
- Action: Specifies what actions Xcode performs when the breakpoint is triggered. You can have Xcode execute an AppleScript script or a shell or debugger command, log or speak a message, or emit a sound.
- Options: Specifies additional breakpoint behavior, such as whether to continue program execution after performing actions.
