PDEBUG_EXTENSION_NOTIFY callback function

The engine calls the DebugExtensionNotify callback function to inform the extension DLL when a session changes its active or accessible status.

C++
 CALLBACK* PDEBUG_EXTENSION_NOTIFY DebugExtensionNotify;

Syntax

PDEBUG_EXTENSION_NOTIFY PdebugExtensionNotify;

void PdebugExtensionNotify(
  ULONG Notify,
  ULONG64 Argument
)
{...}

Parameters

Notify

Can be any of the following values:

Value Description
DEBUG_NOTIFY_SESSION_ACTIVE A debugging session is active. The session may not necessarily be suspended.
DEBUG_NOTIFY_SESSION_INACTIVE No debugging session is active.
DEBUG_NOTIFY_SESSION_ACCESSIBLE The debugging session has suspended and is now accessible.
DEBUG_NOTIFY_SESSION_INACCESSIBLE The debugging session has started running and is now inaccessible.

Argument

Set to zero. (Reserved for future use.)

Return value

None

Remarks

This function is optional. A DbgEng extension DLL only needs to export DebugExtensionNotify if it wants to be notified when the session state changes. The engine looks for this function by name in the extension DLL.

This function allows the extension DLL to cache information about the session without needing to register explicit callbacks. It is called at the beginning and end of a session, and each time a target starts or stops executing.

After the extension DLL is initialized, the engine will use this function to notify the DLL if it has started a session. If the current session is suspended, the engine will call this function a second time to notify the DLL that the session is accessible.

Requirements

   
Target Platform Universal
Header dbgeng.h
