Remove-​PS​Breakpoint

Deletes breakpoints from the current console.

Syntax

Remove-PSBreakpoint
      [-Breakpoint] <Breakpoint[]>
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]
Remove-PSBreakpoint
      [-Id] <Int32[]>
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet deletes a breakpoint. Enter a breakpoint object or a breakpoint ID.

When you remove a breakpoint, the breakpoint object is no longer available or functional. If you have saved a breakpoint object in a variable, the reference still exists, but the breakpoint does not function.

Remove-PSBreakpoint is one of several cmdlets designed for debugging Windows PowerShell scripts. For more information about the Windows PowerShell debugger, see about_Debuggers.

Examples

Example 1: Remove all breakpoints

PS C:\> Get-PSBreakpoint | Remove-PSBreakpoint

This command deletes all of the breakpoints in the current console.

Example 2: Remove a specified breakpoint

PS C:\> $B = Set-PSBreakpoint -Script "sample.ps1" -Variable "Name"
PS C:\> $B | Remove-PSBreakpoint

This command deletes a breakpoint.

The first command uses the Set-PSBreakpoint cmdlet to create a breakpoint on the Name variable in the Sample.ps1 script. Then, it saves the breakpoint object in the $B variable.

The second command uses the Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet to delete the new breakpoint. It uses a pipeline operator (|) to send the breakpoint object in the $B variable to the Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet.

As a result of this command, if you run the script, it runs to completion without stopping. Also, the Get-PSBreakpoint cmdlet does not return this breakpoint.

Example 3: Remove a breakpoint by ID

PS C:\> Remove-PSBreakpoint -Id 2

This command deletes the breakpoint with breakpoint ID 2.

Example 4: Use a function to remove all breakpoints

PS C:\> function del-psb { get-psbreakpoint | remove-psbreakpoint }

This simple function deletes all of the breakpoints in the current console. It uses the Get-PSBreakpoint cmdlet to get the breakpoints. Then, it uses a pipeline operator (|) to send the breakpoints to the Remove-PSBreakpoint cmdlet, which deletes them.

As a result, you can type del-psb instead of the longer command.

To save the function, add it to your Windows PowerShell profile.
