Debugger4 Debugger4 Debugger4 Debugger4 Debugger4 Debugger4 Interface

Definition

Debugger4 is used to interrogate and manipulate the state of the debugger and the program being debugged. Debugger4 supersedes the Debugger3 interfaces.

Remarks

The debugger is available through the DTE2 object through its Debugger property. One debugger object is available for each instance of the interactive development environment (IDE).

To use Debugger4, you must add a reference to EnvDTE90a.dll. For native development, you must add a reference to dte90a.tlb.

DTE DTE DTE DTE DTE DTE

Gets the top-level extensibility object.

ExceptionGroups ExceptionGroups ExceptionGroups ExceptionGroups ExceptionGroups ExceptionGroups

Gets the exception settings for the debugger. For each exception, these settings determine whether the debugger gives the code a chance to handle the exception before the debugger breaks execution.

ForceContinue ForceContinue ForceContinue ForceContinue ForceContinue ForceContinue

Gets or sets a value that determines whether the debugger breaks or continues when a tracepoint or breakpoint finishes executing a macro. The default behavior is set by the user in the dialog box when the tracepoint or breakpoint is created. This property can be used to change the default behavior.

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the expressions are output in hexadecimal or decimal format.

HexInputMode HexInputMode HexInputMode HexInputMode HexInputMode HexInputMode

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the expressions are evaluated in hexadecimal or decimal format.

Gets the last reason that a program was broken. If the program is running, it returns DBG_REASON_NONE.

Gets the list of processes that are currently running on this computer.

OnlyLoadSymbolsManually OnlyLoadSymbolsManually OnlyLoadSymbolsManually OnlyLoadSymbolsManually OnlyLoadSymbolsManually OnlyLoadSymbolsManually

Gets a value that determines whether symbols are loaded manually or automatically. The Visual Studio user can determine this setting in the Options dialog box. For more information about how to set this value within Visual Studio, see How to: Specify a Symbol Path.

Parent Parent Parent Parent Parent Parent

Gets the immediate parent object of the Debugger4 object (DTE2).

SymbolCachePath SymbolCachePath SymbolCachePath SymbolCachePath SymbolCachePath SymbolCachePath

Gets a string that contains the path to the symbols cache used by Visual Studio when you download symbols from a symbols server. You can specify the symbols cache path in the Options dialog box. For more information, see How to: Use a Symbol.

SymbolPath SymbolPath SymbolPath SymbolPath SymbolPath SymbolPath

Gets a string that contains paths to .PDB symbol files that are used by Visual Studio for debugging. The Visual Studio user can specify symbols paths in the Options dialog box. For more information, see How to: Specify a Symbol Path.

SymbolPathState SymbolPathState SymbolPathState SymbolPathState SymbolPathState SymbolPathState

Gets a string that represents the state of all symbol paths for the .PDB symbol files that are used by Visual Studio for debugging.

Transports Transports Transports Transports Transports Transports

Gets a collection of supported debugging transports.

Methods

Break(Boolean) Break(Boolean) Break(Boolean) Break(Boolean) Break(Boolean) Break(Boolean)

Causes the given process to pause its execution so that its current state can be analyzed.

DetachAll() DetachAll() DetachAll() DetachAll() DetachAll() DetachAll()

Detaches from all attached programs.

ExecuteStatement(String, Int32, Boolean) ExecuteStatement(String, Int32, Boolean) ExecuteStatement(String, Int32, Boolean) ExecuteStatement(String, Int32, Boolean) ExecuteStatement(String, Int32, Boolean) ExecuteStatement(String, Int32, Boolean)

Executes the specified statement. If the TreatAsExpression flag is true, then the string is interpreted as an expression, and output is sent to the Command Window.

GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32)

Evaluates an expression based on the current stack frame. If the expression can be parsed but not evaluated, an object is returned but does not contain a valid value.

GetExpression2(String, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression2(String, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression2(String, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression2(String, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression2(String, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression2(String, Boolean, Boolean, Int32)

Evaluates an expression based on the current stack frame. If the expression can be parsed but not evaluated, an object is returned but does not contain a valid value. This method is similar to GetExpression(String, Boolean, Int32) but with an additional Boolean parameter, which can be set to true to indicate that the expression is to be evaluated as a statement.

GetExpression3(String, StackFrame, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression3(String, StackFrame, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression3(String, StackFrame, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression3(String, StackFrame, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression3(String, StackFrame, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Int32) GetExpression3(String, StackFrame, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Int32)

Evaluates an expression, similar to EnvDTE90.Debugger2.GetExpression(System.String,System.Boolean,System.Boolean,System.Int32). However, this method allows the caller to specify the stack frame that the evaluation will occur on. It also allows the caller to specify whether automatic evaluation of properties and implicit function calls should occur.

GetProcesses(Transport, String) GetProcesses(Transport, String) GetProcesses(Transport, String) GetProcesses(Transport, String) GetProcesses(Transport, String) GetProcesses(Transport, String)

Gets an object that represents the processes that are currently connected for debugging on the specified transport.

Go(Boolean) Go(Boolean) Go(Boolean) Go(Boolean) Go(Boolean) Go(Boolean)

Starts executing the program from the current statement.

RunToCursor(Boolean) RunToCursor(Boolean) RunToCursor(Boolean) RunToCursor(Boolean) RunToCursor(Boolean) RunToCursor(Boolean)

Executes the program to the current position of the source file cursor.

SetNextStatement() SetNextStatement() SetNextStatement() SetNextStatement() SetNextStatement() SetNextStatement()

Sets the next instruction to be executed, according to the cursor position in the current source file.

SetSymbolSettings(String, String, String, Boolean, Boolean) SetSymbolSettings(String, String, String, Boolean, Boolean) SetSymbolSettings(String, String, String, Boolean, Boolean) SetSymbolSettings(String, String, String, Boolean, Boolean) SetSymbolSettings(String, String, String, Boolean, Boolean) SetSymbolSettings(String, String, String, Boolean, Boolean)

Sets various settings for the .PDB symbols used by Visual Studio for debugging and forces reloading of all symbols.

StepInto(Boolean) StepInto(Boolean) StepInto(Boolean) StepInto(Boolean) StepInto(Boolean) StepInto(Boolean)

Steps into the next function call, if possible.

StepOut(Boolean) StepOut(Boolean) StepOut(Boolean) StepOut(Boolean) StepOut(Boolean) StepOut(Boolean)

Steps out of the current function.

StepOver(Boolean) StepOver(Boolean) StepOver(Boolean) StepOver(Boolean) StepOver(Boolean) StepOver(Boolean)

Steps over the next function call.

Stop(Boolean) Stop(Boolean) Stop(Boolean) Stop(Boolean) Stop(Boolean) Stop(Boolean)

Stops debugging and terminates or detaches from all attached processes.

TerminateAll() TerminateAll() TerminateAll() TerminateAll() TerminateAll() TerminateAll()

Terminates all currently running debugging processes.

WriteMinidump(String, dbgMinidumpOption) WriteMinidump(String, dbgMinidumpOption) WriteMinidump(String, dbgMinidumpOption) WriteMinidump(String, dbgMinidumpOption) WriteMinidump(String, dbgMinidumpOption) WriteMinidump(String, dbgMinidumpOption)

If debugging a program and in Break mode, this function creates a minidump of the current debugging session.
