Tracepoints provide deep level insight into your code at the point in which you indicate within the NerdVision application. When a tracepoint is triggered, it captures the scope variables and stack trace without interrupting the code execution.
Tracepoints can be configured to capture a single frame or the full stack. When triggered, a notification can also be set to email you directly, letting you know exactly when it happened.
Adding a tracepoint¶
- Tracepoints require you to have created a workspace and connected an application in order to work
- Select the file you wish to apply the tracepoint on
- Insert the tracepoint by clicking to the left of the line number of the line of code you wish to trace
- When that line is triggered in your application you will receive a snapshot
You can also right click to create a tracepoint and set some simple configuration options straight away.
