I do not understand how the debugger works.  I am using the 'comment' command to display variable values in the top left corner of strategy tester, but sometimes I cannot tell what section of my code is changing those variables.  I have tried using the debugger but I do not know how to advance the code to a certain point in time.  I would think there would be a way to do that like you can by clicking the 'skip to' button on strategy tester

I was testing historical data when I found my bug.  I added the following line of code so that I could create a breakpoint at the time of the candle where I noticed the bug.  I also added a watch on the variable I wanted to observe.  When the break point was hit, the time was today 2013.05.07.  How do I use the debugger so that I can review my variables at the specific candle that is causing me issues.

if (TimeCurrent() > "2001.02.01 22:00")
{  printf ("break"); }

The debugger doesn't work with Strategy Tester. Maybe later. You can ask directly to Metaquotes (write to ServiceDesk).

Servicedesk answers: "Maybe later". It is not so easy to implement this functionality right now
