Failure to Bind Breakpoint

A breakpoint failure occurs if there is a problem in binding the breakpoint. Breakpoint failures are most often caused by source files being changed without the application being rebuilt. Breakpoints can sometimes bind to a different line, causing them to be moved. If a breakpoint cannot be bound to the binary at this line or the three lines following it, it is displayed with a question mark.

A warning message displays in the 'Details' column of the Breakpoints & Events window, identifying the type of problem:

  • The source file for the breakpoint does not match the source file used to build the application image
  • The time date stamp on the file is greater than that of the image

A warning message is also output to the Debug window.
