Set Execution Step in Debug Mode

Debugger
On our radar
While in Debug Mode, have the chance of setting the Execution to step-back in the flow. Along with this Idea debugging will be quicker.

Merged this idea with 'Debugger improvements' (created on 2017-10-03 10:31:40 by Carlos Freitas)

Add the ability to change the value of a variable, in run-time while debugging;

Allow to move the arrow pointer to a different point in the code and continue the execution;

Hi Carlos

The first part of your idea is already an idea on its own: https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/111/debug-change-variable-values.

As for the second part, I guess that could be useful if you want to skip over an assign for instance.

And the second one exists as well, so I'm merging this.

Hey Pedro,

This is the same as "Skip back in the debugger":

https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/1280/Skip+back+in+the+debugger?IsFromAdvancedSearch=True


Right? Can I merge them?

Miss two things in debug: back button, to skip back to the previous point; and a  way to change values on the variable, input parameters, records, records list...

Return to a selected point and enable to change the values of variables in debug mode.

Hey Breno,

Regarding changing variables' values there is already an older idea for this:
https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/111/%5bDebug%5d+Change+variable+values?IsFromAdvancedSearch=True

I will change the title of your idea so that we can follow up the "Skip back in the debugger" part independently.

Thanks for your idea

I have found that in many cases when I am debugging I will see a value change, but I missed what caused that value to change. It would be extremely helpful to me if there was an option to skip back so I can see where or what caused the value to update. Has anyone else ran into the same issue where they have have to keep starting over and over again and again in the debugger because they can't skip back a step?

Hi.

It sounds like Visual Studio debugger. Right?

I'll appreciate too.

Not sure if this would be possible with Java stack, but i second this idea. It would be helpful.

Nice also to be able to alter variable values during single-stepping so that you can control flow

While debugging allow to "move the cursor" in order to set the next executable action in the flow, allowing for instance coming out of a foreach cycle

Sounds great to me!

Now that you can prefent it by setting a maximum iterations but for this is done we first need to break te current debug (most of time you noticy it afterwards:) ) , set the value, run, debug and set the value back.

When debugging it was nice that we can go back/Forward to another step and change the values of variables

Merged this idea with 'Reverse Debuging' (created on 06 Nov 2013 14:09:07 by Rui Félix)
In some cases, extra effort must be spend while debugging or preparing the debug conditions. 
It would be great if reverse debugging existed in the OutSystems platform.

I know this feature is like reaching for the stars, but then again, that's why the 'Ideas' are for. :)
