Debug SAP after popup – dialog box

So you know how to debug and all is going well until a pop-up (dialog box) appears and exits your debugging session. There is a simple trick to switch on debugging once you reach a pop-up, proceed as follows:

Create a TXT file and save it on your desktop with the following command:


Then if you want to activate debugging on a pop-up/dialog box, simply drag and drop the TXT file from your desktop onto the pop-up/dialog box in SAP. Next time you press enter you will be back in your debugging session. Happiness.

    I had a similar requirement but the constraint was that I was logged in thru CITRIX and this option of Drag and drop would not work.How would we be able to Debug a pop up in such cases?

    Alternatively, instead of text file, we can create a short cut with system command /H. Drag and drop the short cut to activate debugging in the pop-up
