Detect DEBUG Mode



i have written a singleton class for measuring the runtime of different parts of our programs.

It gets timestamps before and after some routines, calculates the runtimes and logs the results in a DB table.

My problem is: if someone would debug these parts of coding, the calculated runtime would be by far way longer then the real runtime, since the program has to wait for the developer.

Now i would need a way to find out if the DEBUG mode is on, so i can avoid these wrong results to be loged.

I already tried using the structure 'ABDBG', using it like shown in the following piece of code:

TABLES: abdbg.

IF abdbg-syrepid IS NOT INITIAL.

" DEBUG mode is on !

Unfortunately this doesn't work for me because of 2 reasons:

- the "TABLES" declaration cannot be used in classes

- even if i use this coding in a Test-Report, the structure 'ABDBG' is existent but INITIAL.

Anyone can give me some ideas for solving this problem?

Thank you in advance for any hints.

With best regards
