Source code breakpoints:

Add RADbg.dll to AddIns.


x=Next free number
y=0Source code breakpoints.
y=1Int 3 breakpoints. No interaction with RadASM.
y=16Also shows results in RadASM output window#1.
y=17-31Only shows result in RadASM output window#1. Delay y-16 seconds.

Limitations to source code breakpoints.

1. Add to your project.
2. Running old exe with breakpoints in a newly opened project will not work.
RadASM's current window handle is assembled into your code. Always rebuild exe.

Tip: Create a keyboard macro to include to your code.

The above does not apply if you are using int 3 breakpoints and a debugger.

You must use RADbg.dll and version or higher with this version of RadASM.
