This method adds a new code breakpoint.

HRESULT AddCodeBreakpoint(
  CBP_KIND cbpk,
  MEM_TYPE mt,
  DWORD dwExecMode,
  DWORD dwTotalBypassCount,
  IeXdiCodeBreakpoint** ppieXdiCodeBreakpoint


  • Address
    [in] Address of the instruction on which the method will break.
  • cbpk
    [in] ** Indicates if the code breakpoint must be hardware, software, or if the probe driver can decide based on its algorithm and resources available. In the case of software breakpoints, the probe driver must keep track of instruction being replaced.
  • mt
    [in] ** Indicates whether this memory address concerns virtual memory or physical memory. Peripheral I/O is not applicable and mtContext value is not accepted.
  • dwExecMode
    [in] In the case of multiple mode processors, gives a hint on the process mode at the time of the execution of the code where to set the breakpoint.
  • dwTotalBypassCount
    [in] Total number of bypasses before triggering a microprocessor halt on this breakpoint.
  • ppieXdiCodeBreakpoint
    [out] Returns a pointer to the newly created breakpoint object's interface.
