Breakpoint Shape

Default Appearance

What it Does

The Breakpoint Shape temporality halt the execution of the program. This is useful both for debugging programs and for demonstrations. Most professional software development applications have some form of the breakpoint.


The example, to the right, creates a variable called 'value' and assigns it an initial value of 12. The program then encounters a breakpoint shape - which still halt execution.

This will allow the user to see the current value of 'n' in the Variable Watch Window. Once execution is continued, the second assignment shape is executed.
