When I’m working on a project in the IDE, I always leave the ‘Break On Exceptions’ menu item checked. I’m the kind of programmer who’s afraid of missing a special and random exception condition when running a project in the debugger. I just can’t help it, even if it proved useful only once or twice since I’m using Xojo® ( it was named REALbasic 2.1 at the time ). The counterpart is that each time an exception is raised, the debugger kicks in. Even if this exception condition is expected and properly handled. Fortunately, there is a pragma that can help.
