Right clicking on a breakpoint should have a menu of options 
pass count
Action break
action log
action log call stack.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Expected Results:  
Action refers to what action should occur when the breakpoint is activated.

There is already a context menu for breakpoints in the Breakpoints tool view. Did you expect the menu in the icon border (where the red bug icon is shown)?

Also explain what you mean by those:
Action break
action log
action log call stack.
Comment 2 Chris Bruner 2011-12-17 16:07:25 UTC
Yes, right clicking on the red bug icon, should bring up the context menu. To me that would be more intuitive. 

thread would be used to specify which thread the breakpoint is applied to.  I don't know how valuable this would be, as I don't do much multi threading work, but I suspect that it could be very useful for someone trying to debug a multithreaded application.

Action log, would, instead of breaking, write the system state to the log file. Possibly with a predefined message. 

Action log call stack would, instead of breaking, write out the call stack to the log file.

Ok, I changed the title of this bug to add a context menu on the mark.
It should be easy to implement, KTextEditor provides a markContextMenuRequested method.

The other stuff should be separate bugs:
Afaik you can't have a breakpoint for a specific thread.
And this action log you describe... that would be tracepoints. Actually so far I always used qDebug instead, but might be useful.

add context menu to breakpoint mark in kate icon border

Depends on the latest kate 4.8 version (without the menu will
not be shown)

Will not be in KDevelop 4.3 because of new strings.
