For a line breakpoint, the only option available is a Pass Count. There are three options:
Option Description
Always Break Breaks every time the program the program hits the specified line
Break occurs Count instructions after Event Breaks after the specified line is hit plus the number of instructions specified by Count
Event must occur Count times Breaks after the line has been hit the number of times specified by Count

Always Break is the default condition. The other two options both accept one parameter called Count that cause the break to occur later than the event that triggered it. For example, if you set the condition to Event must occur Count times and specifiy a value of 5 for Count, then your program would have to hit that line 5 times before it would break.
