Breakpoint Manager

The new Breakpoint Manager in LabVIEW 8.6 allows you to easily see all the breakpoints you have set on all VIs in memory. To see it, select the View menu and choose Breakpoint Manager or right-click on a wire, structure or node and select Breakpoint Manager from the Breakpoint shortcut menu. From the manager window you can quickly go to the diagram where the breakpoint is set by double-clicking on the breakpoint in the listbox.

The buttons along the right allow you to enable, disable and remove breakpoints, as well as select all breakpoints.

The ability to disable breakpoints is another new feature. This can be very useful when you need to visit breakpoints in a particular order, which can be done by enabling the second breakpoint when you hit the first. Disabled breakpoints are saved with VIs, which means you can also use them like bookmarks.

is it possible to selectively disable/enable a breakpoint say programatically through another VI?

As far as I know, there is currently no way to disable/enable breakpoints programmatically.
