Property Value


A Boolean indicating whether the package is in debug mode. A value of true indicates that the object is in debug mode, and raises the OnBreakpointHit(IDTSBreakpointSite, BreakpointTarget) event.



The IsBreakpointTargetEnabled function is called each time the task encounters a breakpoint in its code. Because calling the function IsBreakpointTargetEnabled to see if the breakpoint target is enabled is expensive when called repeatedly, the DebugMode flag is used to indicate if the executable is to be debugged. When this flag is set to false, the task can avoid the call to check for an enabled breakpoint. A value of true indicates that the task should check for enabled breakpoints, and is when the IsBreakpointTargetEnabled is checked.
