Hi,

So I am programmatically creating a debug configuration. Everything is good and every attribute is set as I wanted it to be, except for the stopping at main.

I am using this code: configuration.setAttribute(ICDTLaunchConfigurationConstants.ATTR_DEBUGGER_STOP_AT_MAIN, false);

And for some reason, the box is still checked.

Any advice? Thank you!

I think you should be asking this on the Eclipse CDT forum: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=thread&frm_id=80

Set a conditional breakpoint and see where else this key is being used? I found the ordering of calls within the debug classes to be pretty confusing.

I did not manage to find any calls. Do you have any other ideas?

Thank you!

Where and when are you setting this value? It's hard to make suggestions without any details!

My plugin has its main objective the creation of a project with some files in it. I have a method that creates the debug configuration when a button is clicked.

Inside the method, I get the Launch manager, the type of launch (which because it is a debug remote application type, I use org.eclipse.cdt.launch.remoteApplicationLaunchType), I create a working copy and after that I just set attributes. Every attribute is set perfectly, except for stopping at main.

Thank you!

I think you need to look at the logic in the CDT UI parts then? Taking a quick looking at the CDT source, CDT launch UIs use other guards to govern the use of the stop-in-main.

And since you are a wizard, I will try my luck.

Do you know if there exists a list or a way to find all of Eclipse preferences? I am trying to make the switch from Automatic GDB DSF mode in the debug configuration to manual.

Thank you!

Sadly no. There's no declarative mechanism for defining preferences so code can create preferences at will. You can use tools like Oomph's preference recorder (https://www.eclipse.org/community/eclipse_newsletter/2014/november/article2.php provides a good overview) to at least capture what preferences are being set.

Brian.
