Re: [cdt-dev] Breakpoints in a custom editor that extends CEditor

Hi Sadik,

Is your GDB session running, IIRC error messages like that that error message will come from GDB - so to diagnose why it is happening I would turn on MI trace in Preferences -> C/C++ -> Debug -> GDB -> Show the GDB traces consoles, and then examine the MI trace to identify what is different. 

If not from GDB session, then I am not sure what is wrong. But eventually you want to end up at org.eclipse.cdt.debug.core.CDIDebugModel.createLineBreakpoint(String, IResource, int, int, boolean, int, String, boolean) (or similar method) to actually create a breakpoint.  

You probably want to enable breakpoint target factories like the CEditor does, here is an example of enabling breakpoints for the disassembly (from org.eclipse.cdt.dsf.ui/plugin.xml):

   <extension point="org.eclipse.debug.ui.toggleBreakpointsTargetFactories">
            <!-- Enable the breakpoint toggle for DSF Disassembly -->

Hello everyone,

I have a custom editor in my eclipse plugin that extends CDT's CEditor.
When I open a file with the CEditor, I can set breakpoints. However,
when I try to set breakpoints in my editor, I get the generic message
that says something like "The operation is not permitted". Nothing you
can google for. Does anyone here have a quick guess what I'm missing or
where I can get more information on how to enable breakpoints? The
breakpoints don't have to function as breakpoints for now, I just want
to see them in the editor and in the breakpoints view.

best regards
