Debugging Controls Greyed Out [message #184516] Sun, 25 January 2004 12:31 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm having a problem when trying to debug a Java application in Eclipse. I
start the debugger, my application starts and my breakpoint fires. I
switch back to the IDE and find my breakpoint in the source but when I go
to the 'run' menu all the debugging controls (step over, step into etc)
are greyed out and cannot be selected. Hitting the equivalent F keys
doesn't work either. The only way I can stop the debugging session is by
quitting Eclipse.

Has anyone seen a problem like this before? I am doing something dumb?

I have Eclipse 2.1.2, Win 2K and Java 1.4.1

With thanks for your help

Do you have the debug view visible?
You can always terminate a debug session via the Console "Terminate" button
(the red square in the Console toolbar)

Thanks for your reply. Yes I have it set to the debug perspective and I
can see the options 'resume', 'suspend', 'terminate', 'step over' etc in
the run menu when I start up a debugging session. However all the options
are greyed out all the time and cannot be selected.

My breakpoints are working and when I roll the mouse over variables I get
a tooltip telling me the current value of the variable. So it is debugging
it's just these menu options are not available for some reason.

The terminate button on the console does terminate the debug session
though thanks however I can't debug because I can't click the 'step over'
option etc.

hi Leon,

I have the same problem with Eclipse V3 M6.
I can 'run' my sample but Stepping through in debug mode is not possible.

What did I do wrong?

I used Eclipse at my office and it's working fine there.

Hope someone can help.

TIA

Can you use the actions in the toolbar of the Debug view for stepping
(Window>Show View>Debug if in the Debug perspective)?

The debug view has to be open. The selection in the debug view drives the
stepping actions.

Ahhhh....that's got it. Yep, if I open that debug view panel as you
suggest below the items in the run menu become available. If you close
that panel the controls in the menu are greyed out and disabled.

Thanks very much for your help.

Hi there,

I had this issue as well.
I had JUnit tests running and they would quit, so just clicking "Keep JUnit running after a test run when debugging" in the debug configuration settings area where you created the debug test.

Hope this helped.
