Studio provides an interactive debugger for Basic. Within a project's settings—click Project and then Settings—specify a Debugging Target, which is usually the routine you want to debug.

generated description: debugtarget

Use F9 to toggle one or more breakpoints in the routine. You can also set watchpoints, by clicking Project, Settings, and Watchpoints. A breakpoint is a location within a routine where execution will stop. A watchpoint is a variable that will cause execution to stop whenever its value changes. Click F5 to run the routine using the debugger. Studio will create a Terminal process, attach to it, and display it in the Output window. Your routine will run in that process, stopping when it reaches a breakpoint or a watchpoint. In Studio, use F10 (step over) and F11 (step into) to step through the code. The Watch window allows you to specify variables and displays their changing values as the code runs.
