QT Creator Debug Continue



  • Is this normal, that the application, which stopped on a breakpoint, is NOT getting the focus again, after I press "Continue"? This is annoying - neither VS nor Emba behaves so..


  • Moderators

    Yes it's normal.

    I like the way it behaves. When I'm debugging, I want to see the code. If I need to see the app, I can focus it myself. But of course you may disagree, it's purely a matter of personal preferences.

    And as such it suggests it would be good to add an option to QtC settings to toggle between both behaviours. Feel free to file a suggestion to Qt Creator bug tracker.

    Yes that's right. Of course it should show the code, when I'm debugging. But it should also switch back to the application, after I press Continue - as then my debug action is over and I need to see the application again. This is what current IDEs do since Turbo C++1.0 and what QT Creator also should do.

    I commented an already existing VERY OLD and up to now ignored entry in the bug tracker..

    You've could have added a link here, maybe that have given it more attention ;)

    Sorry about ;)
    As there are so many other annoying issues with the QTCreator IDE, I moved over to VS. I also gave up writing a bug&feature list, as it will take decades for getting fixed. QTCreator IMHO is a nice prototyping tool for small test-projects but not for real development (e.g. how about Edit&Continue?).



  • Judging Creator on the basis of how well it mimics VS behavior would be like evaluating a Ferrari on how well it mows lawns.

    And if there are problems with its behavior, as was mentioned above, you can suggest improvements. Qt listens...try that with Microsoft.

    They might probably listen, but not fix ;) The reported entry was from 2013. If every little improvement wish takes >7 Years, for what reason I even shall report? On the other hand, I don't see any reason to make a copy of VS - this sounds like re-inventing the wheel again and again. It makes more sense to me to improve the integration of QT in VS.
