Determines whether the processing of a Debugger macro may continue. If the state ("True" or "False") of a specified command argument (macro variable, client function, or constant) is True, the macro continues.

If the state of the continueIf argument or comparison expression is False, the macro containing this command and any macro(s) within which this macro is contained terminate (without error). This behavior contrasts with that of the continueMacroIf command, which exits only the macro containing the continueMacroIf command.


continueIf test

Where test is:

&var | &&function | const  [ = | <> &var | &&function | const 


  • &var is a macro variable that may or may not already exist.
  • &&function is a Client function.
  • const is a constant.


If continueIf is used with a single argument and that argument is 0 or a zero length (null) string, or if it is undefined, its state is considered to be False. For all other values, its state is considered to be True. In an equality comparison any undefined item makes an equality comparison False.
