Debugging with NetBeans

Threaded View
I am a fairly experienced PHP developer, now using WAMPServer in
Windows Vista.

I am currently becoming familiar with using NetBeans/XDebug as an IDE.

I find I cannot find a way, when debugging a Project, to run without
breaking from the initial index.php to a BreakPoint set up in a file
quite far down its structural tree, then stop there for interactive
debugging. Instead, execution halts at the first line of each
different .php file entered, when "Run to Cursor" simply takes me on
to the first line in the next file.

While I was doing "manual" debugging, I would run the Project down to
the first screen presented by the file I wanted to debug, then browser-
navigate back to the last previous screen, make any desired changes to
the coding in the target file, then run forward again.

This in fact was a much more time-efficient way of getting to where I
wanted to be, but of course I could waste much more time once I was
there, since I didn't have the facilities of interactive debugging to
take advantage of.

Am I missing a trick with NetBeans?

I would recommend asking in the NetBeans support forums.  That's where
their experts hang out.

When dealing with a product, you should always start with that product's
support structure.
