    Howdy,

    I'm an absolute newbie on both Pydev and Eclipse. So far I'm really impressed, btw.

    In my TraitsUI application I am generating an exception, I would like to have the debugger
    open at the point of this exception. I can't figure out how to do this. I know how to set
    breakpoints, but this is different. I'd like to examine the stack at the point of the traceback and
    have the debugger open automatically.

    thanks,
    Danny

      Hi Danny,

      Unfortunately, there are currently no breakpoint exceptions in Pydev (there's already a feature request for that, but it's still not done).

      Cheers,

      Fabio

        that's ok. It would be nice, but since I'm using Traits, I can still use FBI and get into
        a debugger that way... FBI seems to play nicely with Pydev
