Breakpoint.FileColumn Property

Indicates the character location within a line in a file for a file breakpoint.

Namespace: EnvDTE
Assembly: EnvDTE (in envdte.dll)

int FileColumn { get; }
/** @property */
int get_FileColumn ()

function get FileColumn () : int

Property Value

An integer that represents the character location within a line in a file that contains the breakpoint.

The return value is specified in the Character box of the File, New Breakpoint Dialog Box dialog box.

The following example demonstrates how to use the FileColumn property.

To test this property:

  1. Set a breakpoint in the target application.

  2. Run the add-in.

public static void FileColumn(DTE dte)
{
    // Setup debug Output window.
    Window w = (Window)dte.Windows.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsWindowKindOutput);
    w.Visible = true;
    OutputWindow ow = (OutputWindow)w.Object;
    OutputWindowPane owp = ow.OutputWindowPanes.Add("FileColumn Property Test: ");
    owp.Activate();

    // dte is a reference to the DTE object passed to you by the
    // OnConnection method that you implement when you create an add-in.
    EnvDTE.Debugger debugger = (EnvDTE.Debugger)dte.Debugger;
    owp.OutputString("Breakpoint in the file " + debugger.Breakpoints.Item(1).File);
    owp.OutputString(" on line " + 
                     debugger.Breakpoints.Item(1).FileLine.ToString() + " column ");
    owp.OutputString(debugger.Breakpoints.Item(1).FileColumn.ToString() + " is ");
    owp.OutputString(debugger.Breakpoints.Item(1).Enabled ? "enabled." : "disabled.");
    owp.OutputString("\nThis breakpoint is in the function: " + 
                     debugger.Breakpoints.Item(1).FunctionName);
}
