Remarks

NoteNote:

The common language runtime attaches no semantics to this attribute. It is provided for use by source code debuggers.

The DebuggerBrowsableAttribute attribute can be applied only as a single instance to properties and fields. It cannot be applied to assemblies.

The constructor for this attribute takes one of the following DebuggerBrowsableState enumeration values:

  • Never indicates that the member is not displayed in the data window. For example, using this value for the DebuggerBrowsableAttribute on a field removes the field from the hierarchy; the field is not displayed when you expand the enclosing type by clicking the plus sign (+) for the type instance.

  • Collapsed indicates that the member is displayed but not expanded by default. This is the default behavior.

  • RootHidden indicates that the member itself is not shown, but its constituent objects are displayed if it is an array or collection.
