I finished writing the new breakpoint widget, but we need testers and Qt programmers to check if the code is OK for merging.

This is the pull request. If you are interested in this feature and is an OpenMSX developer please help me by testing and reviewing it. Here are some (hopefully enticing) screenshots:


This is also the time for suggestions. Any changes needed?

No suggestions, but I like that somebody is improving the debugger! I will install it and use it, see where it takes me.

Awesome! I didn't know I wanted this feature. I kind of always hit trouble with breakpoints. Mostly because I have set the wrong slot/page/segment, but after setting it's hard to check back on a breakpoint. This widget solves that.

Really nice! Will we have the possibility to enable/disable a BP on the new widget? Normally I just add/remove conditions and BP with the openMSX's terminal when needed (perhaps there's a better way), but if we can do that with the Debugger it'd be great!

Thanks. You can download it here if you use Windows or GNU. I forgot to mention that in the original message.

Yes. The checkbox on the left allows the user to disable/enable breakpoints and watchpoints with a single click. The emulator doesn't know anything about disabled breakpoints, but it doesn't need to, since the debugger saves all the information about them when they don't exist on the emulator.
