DebugBreak function

Causes a breakpoint exception to occur in the current process. This allows the calling thread to signal the debugger to handle the exception.

To cause a breakpoint exception in another process, use the DebugBreakProcess function.

Syntax

void DebugBreak(

);

Parameters

This function has no parameters.

Return Value

This function does not return a value.

Remarks

If the process is not being debugged, the function uses the search logic of a standard exception handler. In most cases, this causes the calling process to terminate because of an unhandled breakpoint exception.

Examples

For an example, see Using an Exception Handler.
