How to trap on UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints?

I'm seeing an error appear in my debugger log:

Will attempt to recover by breaking constraint
<NSLayoutConstraint:0x191f0920 H:[MPKnockoutButton:0x17a876b0]-(34)-[MPDetailSlider:0x17a8bc50](LTR)>

Make a symbolic breakpoint at UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints to catch this in the debugger.
The methods in the UIConstraintBasedLayoutDebugging category on UIView listed in <UIKit/UIView.h> may also be helpful.

How do I trap on that call? It does not appear anywhere in my code.



You'll want to add a Symbolic Breakpoint. Apple provides an excellent guide on how to do this.

  1. Open the Breakpoint Navigator cmd+7
  2. Click the Add button in the lower left
  3. Select Add Symbolic Breakpoint...
  4. Where it says Symbol just type in UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints

You can also treat it like any other breakpoint, turning it on and off, adding actions, or log messages.
