It would be very helpful in debugging to have the ability to breakpoint when
some condition is reached, like: variable is <,=,>,isset, is null,  or set of
variables meet a condition. Also it would be good if it supports also  'has
changed' option.
It should work also with magic methods.

Would love to see Conditional Breakpoints in PHP debugger too.

* According to (which proposes a decent in-code workaround) Conditional Breakpoints exist in NetBeans in other languages but not in PHP. According to 
* According to another IDE does support it against XDEBUG, so limitation is not in xdebug.

Sorry for adding a useless comment.  The 'add to cc' feature doesn't seem to work
Comment 9 postadelmaga 2013-07-29 01:33:30 UTC
Guys Netbeans for Php has a long street to become competitive ... 

This is a must have feature and should be implemented as soon as possible !
I cannot understand why it is still ignored
Comment 10 waldermort 2015-03-30 12:21:53 UTC
+1 This is a MUST for any debugger
Comment 11 jesae 2016-03-13 23:34:56 UTC
This is an important debugging feature.  I see where you commented that you would have to evaluate XDebug support for this feature ( It is supported in XDebug.  See the documentation section 7.6 Breakpoints.

This feature should include conditional breakpoints (break on a condition such as $myVariable==2), break on hit count (Break when a breakpoint has been hit a defined number of times) and break on variable change.  

It appears this is an old bug report.  Does this have to be moved forward NetBeans 8.1 to be active?  

Thank you for all your work and support by the way.

If I can be of any assistance, I would be glad to help. Research, alpha testing or such.

Although I cannot promise anything, I'll try to implement it in the next version(NOT NB9.0, after NB9.0 is released).
As small good news, it seems that my prototype based on another language debugger works.

Just a prototype. As I wrote, we cannot apply it soon.

Thanks for your understanding.
