Flash Builder 4.6 – Conditional Breakpoints

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

When debugging an application, in FB 4.6 one can now set conditions on when a breakpoint is activated. This can be very handy when you want to know when a certain condition is met on a piece of logic without having to set up IF statements, traces or debug logs.
