Description _ lcincura 2004-05-11 10:32:59 UTC
In NB3.6 it was possible to create method
breakpoint from context menu in classes view. As
it was said, this was duplicate information to
explorer, so methods are not shown anymore in the
view. But with it also the feature is gone.
Would be nice to have possibility to create method
breakpoint from context menu in explorer. This way
can be created also variable breakpoints and watches.

I can imagine this behavior. On the other hand it is possible to select (double
click) the method in explorer and add breakpoint via menu. 
Comment 2 Martin Entlicher 2006-07-10 20:39:54 UTC
As suggested in issue #57442, the set of the method entry/exit breakpoints
should be available in the context menu on method nodes in the Projects window
as well as Navigator window.
Also nodes in the Call Stack view can have that in context menu.

We will add the possibility to add field and method breakpoints via the gutter
in Editor. Currently, only line breakpoints can be added that way. The extension
with field and method breakpoints looks natural.
Comment 4 Martin Entlicher 2007-05-22 15:45:39 UTC
See issue #65015, the field and method breakpoints can be submitted from the
Editor gutter now. This seems to be easy enough...

Verified ... and Closing all issues resolved into NetBeans 6.7 and earlier.
