Process.Parent Property

Gets the immediate parent object of a Process object.

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

Debugger Parent { get; }
/** @property */
Debugger get_Parent ()

function get Parent () : Debugger

Property Value

A Debugger object.

The Parent property returns the immediate parent to the Process object. To get the containing collection, use the Collection property.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Parent property.

To test this property:

  1. Set a breakpoint in your target application.

  2. Run the target application in the debug mode.

  3. When the application stops on the breakpoint, run the add-in.

public static void Parent(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("Parent Property Test");
    owp.Activate();
    owp.OutputString("\nEdition of the environment: " + 
                        dte.Debugger.DebuggedProcesses.Item(1).DTE.Edition);
    owp.OutputString("\nThe name of the current program: " + 
                        dte.Debugger.DebuggedProcesses.Item(1).Name);
    owp.OutputString("\nThe name of the current program: " + 
                        dte.Debugger.DebuggedProcesses.Item(1).Parent.CurrentProgram.Name);
    owp.OutputString("\nProcess ID: " + 
                        dte.Debugger.DebuggedProcesses.Item(1).ProcessID);
    EnvDTE.Programs programs = 
                        dte.Debugger.DebuggedProcesses.Item(1).Programs;
    owp.OutputString("\nThe name of the current program: " + 
                        programs.Item(1).Name);
}
