Android Question How to hide debugging popup message on device?

Good evening, folks!

I'm debuging an app but the "Program paused on line: xxx" message is covering an important information on the device's screen that I'd like to see.

For now, following execution step-by-step on the IDE interface is enough for me.

Is it possible to debug an app and disable temporarily the above message on the device?

Regards,
Fernando

You can Log the values
B4X:
Log(lblLetter(indOrigem).Background)
Log(wColorBackground)

or

B4X:
LogColor(lblLetter(indOrigem).Background, Colors.Blue)
LogColor(wColorBackground, Colors.Red)

or use
B4X:
ToastMessageShow(wColorBackground, False)

Thank you, Aeric

That's what I'm doing, but I still would like to toggle show/hide that message in the device in certain moments. Or always.

use a flag and your own ToastMessageShow method
or for each
if showDebugMessage then ToastMessageShow

toggle this flag via key or menu

how would you collect the message? Note that the error happens when the app crashes.
I mean; the TO is stepping through debug mode and the dialog shown is from the debugger.
I would use LOG instead. honestly i use DEBUG mode very rare.

Usually i do compile in release mode and check the log when my app crashes instead of using DEBUG

there is also a Application_Error method in the service if this message pop up if there is not error handling with try catch.
ohh it is only for release mode.

Thank you Don,

I use log, messages and special label fields to show something of interest during debug as well... Unfortunatelly I can't completely avoid debug mode which is a wonderful tool...
What I was looking at is a way to show/not show that dialog on the device... Specially when it covers visual elements whose behavior I'm trying to understand during debug.
For this

Maybe this toggle on/off show debug message on the device may be a nice to have future feature.

Fot this specific case I was able to move visual elements away from debug message, but this is not always possible.

Cheers!!!
