Description georgelund 2013-08-28 09:16:00 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.3 (Build 201306052037)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_25
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.25-b01

I'd really like to be able to turn on and off the option in Tools/Options/PHP/Debugging/Stop at First Line with one click.

A toolbar button would be ideal, or perhaps a status bar toggle.

Just curious - why?

So quite frequently when debugging a particular app I have absolutely no idea where the code that's got the problem is -- I kick off the HTTP request and then see where we go. Stopping at the first line helps here sometimes.

However, the web app in question makes quite a lot of background ajax requests, and it's very easy to get things confused if some of those end up dropping into the debugger too.

Maybe this is an edge case, but for me while the Stop on First Line feature *is* very useful, it just isn't useful _all the time_. (Or even most of the time.)

I realise this will be very low priority  :-) thanks

Thanks for the explanation, I see it now.

The problem here is that we (PHP) cannot easily add a button to the main toolbar if the button does not make sense in other areas (Java, Java EE, Maven etc.). The only option now I can see is to define a keyboard shortcut for it...

Understood. A keyboard shortcut would certainly help me anyway! Thanks for your time :)
