SymWriter.OpenScope(Int32) SymWriter.OpenScope(Int32) SymWriter.OpenScope(Int32) SymWriter.OpenScope(Int32) Method

Definition

Opens a new lexical scope in the current method.

public:
 virtual int OpenScope(int startOffset);
public virtual int OpenScope (int startOffset);
abstract member OpenScope : int -> int
override this.OpenScope : int -> int
Public Overridable Function OpenScope (startOffset As Integer) As Integer

Parameters

startOffset
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The IL offset in bytes from the beginning of the method to the first instruction in the lexical scope.

Returns

An opaque scope identifier that can be used with SetScopeRange(Int32, Int32, Int32) to define the start and end offsets of a scope at a later time. In this case, the offsets passed to OpenScope(Int32) and CloseScope(Int32) are ignored. A scope identifier is valid only in the current method.

Implements

Remarks

This scope becomes the new current scope and is pushed onto a stack of scopes. Scopes must form a hierarchy. Siblings are not allowed to overlap.

Scope identifiers are only valid in the current method.
