[SOLVED] IDE design-time package debugging

(1/1)

y.ivanov:
I'm trying to write a design time package for the Lazarus IDE and following the: https://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Extending_the_IDE#Debugging_the_IDE I'm facing difficulties right from the start.
The problem is I have built IDE with the "Debug IDE" profile (-gw3 -gl -gh -gt -Co -Cr -Ci -Sa), loaded lazarus.lpi and then started it. However, I can't set breakpoints anywhere else but in lazarus.pp file. There is no "blue dots" in any other file, neither into my sources, nor other files in lazarus.lpi project.

What I have done wrong?

Lazarus 2.2.2 (rev lazarus_2_2_2) FPC 3.2.2 i386-win32-win32/win64
Windows7, 32-bit
Debugger backend: FpDebug

Hi y.ivanov,

Please add $(IDEBuildOptions) to "Custom Options" of the package.

Martin_fr:
You should have debug info in all the ide/* files, as well as many of the included packages (LCL, ...).
Maybe try to check "clean all" and rebuild?

It can happen that while you compile the lazarus.exe is locked by the running IDE.
In that case your newly build lazarus is called lazarus.new.exe => and will be renamed when you restart the IDE.

After the rebuild check the date/time on the lazarus.exe.

If you have more than one lazarus install dir involved the windows task manager has "properties" in the context menu, and you can check from which path lazarus.exe was started (make a note of the pid of the running IDE before debugging, and then the new pid is in the debugger)


For your own design time package, you need to go to your packages "Options" (in the toolbar of the package window).
- You can either set the flags in the "debugging" page of the Options.
- Or you can go to "custom options" of the option and add

--- Code: Text  [+][-]window.onload = function(){var x1 = document.getElementById("main_content_section"); if (x1) { var x = document.getElementsByClassName("geshi");for (var i = 0; i < x.length; i++) { x[i].style.maxHeight='none'; x[i].style.height = Math.min(x[i].clientHeight+15,306)+'px'; x[i].style.resize = "vertical";}};} ---$(IDEBuildOptions)
Note, that line is also configured in packages like the LCL..., and it means all the options from the "Configure build Lazarus" dialog.

Thanks Martin_fr, GetMem!

Package custom opts = $(IDEBuildOptions), Clean All, Build, all that helped. Now I have line debug info.
Now the easy part follows :)
