Runtime Tracing for C and C++

When tracing large applications, it may be useful to slow down the display of the UML sequence diagram. You can do this by using the Step-by-Step mode.

To activate Step-by-Step mode:

  1. From the UML/SD Viewer menu, select Display Mode and Step-by-Step.

To select the type of graphical element to skip over:

  1. In the UML/SD Viewer toolbar, click the button.

  2. Select the graphical elements that will stop the Step command. Clear the elements that are to be ignored.

To step to the next selected element:

  1. Click the Step button in the UML/SD Viewer toolbar or press F10.

To skip to the end of execution:

  1. Click the Continue button in the UML/SD Viewer toolbar. This will immediately display the rest of the UML sequence diagram.

To restart the Step-by-Step display:

  1. Click the Restart button in the UML/SD toolbar.

To de-activate Step-by-Step mode
