You must check the "debug inside components" option in the IDE.

Then, while debugging, you must step inside any part of your component.

Then the IDE will ask you for the location of the source code project of 
the component (mandatory).

If it is too difficult, you can use the STOP instruction somewhere in 
your component to force the debugger to stop inside it.

Then you will be able to open any source file of the component from the 
IDE and put any breakpoint where you want.

Note : this is not 100% reliable yet.
