IDebugSymbols3::GetScope method (dbgeng.h)

The GetScope method returns information about the current scope.

Syntax

HRESULT GetScope(
  [out, optional] PULONG64           InstructionOffset,
  [out, optional] PDEBUG_STACK_FRAME ScopeFrame,
  [out, optional] PVOID              ScopeContext,
  [in]            ULONG              ScopeContextSize
);

Parameters

[out, optional] InstructionOffset

Receives the location in the process's virtual address space of the current scope's current instruction.

[out, optional] ScopeFrame

Receives the DEBUG_STACK_FRAME structure representing the current scope's stack frame.

[out, optional] ScopeContext

[in] ScopeContextSize

Specifies the size of the buffer ScopeContext.
