Breakpoint.DTE Property

Gets the top-level extensibility object.

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

DTE DTE { get; }

Property Value

Type: EnvDTE.DTE
A DTE object.

In Visual Studio, the DTE object is the root of the automation model, which other object models often call "Application".

The following example demonstrates how to use the DTE property.

To test this property:

  1. Set a breakpoint in the target application.

  2. Run the add-in.

public static void DTE(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("DTE 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.
    DTE DTEProp = dte.Debugger.Breakpoints.Item(1).DTE ;
    owp.OutputString("Edition of the environment: " + DTEProp.Edition);
}
