Add "continue" function in debugger

If I set a breakpoint in my code the debugger stops every time it's hit (which it should). It would be nice if I could say ignore the breakpoint until the bottom (edited - previously top) of the call stack, then re-enable for the next time around. This would be kind of like the Chrome Developer Tools where, if you hold down the green play button it ignores breakpoints for the next 500ms of execution (I think).

Whilst not automated, which would be nice if it was possible to implement, I use the workflow of disabling that breakpoint in the debugger's list of breakpoints before continuing the execution. Then, once the stack is "idle" again I enable the breakpoint. It does mean remembering to swap back to the debugger to do the enable on the relevant breakpoint, but at least you can quickly get through the remaining times it would have stopped on the breakpoint in question without having to repeatedly continue execution. Alternately, if I know the condition under which I want to stop, I'll make the breakpoint conditional instead of always stopping.

Might pay to correct your suggestion then.

Sorry, my analogy is reversed - I mean the bottom of the call stack - i.e. back to idle, waiting for the next event before the breakpoint is active again.

There is an amount of control like this available from the Breakpoints form in the debugger. Can you explain what you mean by "ignore the breakpoint until the top of the call stack"? If you're at a break point, you are at the top of the call stack...
