With Wing you need to set a breakpoint at a specific line number, so you 
set one or more breakpoints and then start the debugger.  Does Foxpro 
have the capability to stop on any line in a particular file?

Wing can only set a breakpoint on lines of code in a Python code file. 
If Dabo generates a file with the callbacks and then imports the file, 
then you can open the generated file and set a breakpoint.  If Dabo 
skips the step of generating a file, then Wing cannot set a breakpoint 
on the code.
