We can use 'Pause'function to pause what's running(e.g in a for loop).If we want to continue,we can just press the keyboard.Then my question is whether there is a way or another similar function which we can set a flag to pause or to continue.

If you only want to pause when specific conditions are satisfied, you can put the pause or keyboard statement inside an if clause.
Another option is to use conditional breakpoints. See

hi Chan,
you can use the function " keyboard" :
doc keyboard;
When you insert the function in function/script , it stops until you type return .

True. I didn't read it carefully, and thought you wrote "... until you press return".
