TraceDialog

FilledSmallSquare TraceDialog[expr] initiates a dialog for every expression used in the evaluation of expr.

FilledSmallSquare TraceDialog[expr, form] initiates a dialog only for expressions which match form.

FilledSmallSquare TraceDialog[expr, s] initiates dialogs only for expressions whose evaluations use transformation rules associated with the symbol s.

FilledSmallSquare See notes for Trace.

FilledSmallSquare The expression to be evaluated when a dialog is called is given as Out[$Line] of the dialog, wrapped in HoldForm. The expression can be seen by asking for % when the dialog is first started.

FilledSmallSquare Any value returned from the dialog is discarded.

FilledSmallSquare TraceDialog[expr] returns the result of evaluating expr.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.6.11.
