Place Recording Markers

This section explains how to place record markers, which enable you to silently record code execution between two points. The recording can be used to generate a Sequence diagram.

As this process records the execution of multiple threads, it can be particularly useful in capturing event driven sequences (such as mouse and timer events).

Access:  Analyzer | Breakpoints and Markers

Use To:

  • Set recording markers, to define what is to be recorded during code execution in order to generate a Sequence diagram




Different recording markers can be used for recording the execution flow; see the related links for information on the properties and usage of these markers
