Debug watches help us to create solid code. Stepping through your own code even when not hunting down bugs ensures that you understand your code and can lead to improving your code via refactoring. Learn how to do it.
- [Instructor] Last time,…we saw the need to test our GUI code.…This video explores setting debug watches.…In this video,…we will reuse the Python GUI we developed in earlier videos.…We are stepping through the code we previously developed…and setting debug watches.…In modern integrated development environments, IDEs,…like the PyDev plugin in Eclipse,…or another IDE, such as NetBeans,…we could set debug watches to monitor the state of our GUI…during the execution of our code.…
This is very similar to the Microsoft IDEs of Visual Studio…and the more recent versions of visualstudio.net.…Setting debug watches is a very convenient way…to help development efforts.…In this video, we will reuse the Python GUI…we developed in earlier videos.…We are stepping through the code…we previously developed and setting debug watches.…While this video applies to the PyDev plugin…in the Java-based Eclipse IDE,…its principles also apply to many modern IDEs.…
The first position where we might wish to place a breakpoint…is at the place where we make our GUI visible…
