Debug CMake project files

With the Qt Creator implementation of the Debug Adapter Protocol (DAP), you can debug CMake project files.

Note: You need CMake 3.27 or later for DAP.

To debug CMake project files:

  1. In the Edit mode, set breakpoints in a CMake file.
  2. Select Debug > Start Debugging > Start CMake Debugging.

    {DAP CMake Preset view in the Debug mode}

When the application stops at a breakpoint, you can examine data in the Debug mode views.

See also Debugging, Examining Data, Debug Mode Views, Setting Breakpoints, and CMake.
