StackFrame.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 is the root of the automation model, which other object models often name "Application".

The following example demonstrates how to use the DTE property.

To test this property

  1. In your target application, set a breakpoint inside the method other than the method Main().

  2. Run the target application in the debug mode.

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

public static void TestStackFrames(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("Stack Frames Test");
    owp.Activate();

    EnvDTE.StackFrames stackFrames = dte.Debugger.CurrentThread.StackFrames;
    owp.OutputString("\nNumber of items in the Current Stack collection: " + 
                     stackFrames.Item(1).Collection.Count + "\n");

    foreach(EnvDTE.StackFrame sf in stackFrames)
    {
        owp.OutputString("\nStack Frame: " + sf.FunctionName);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Edition of the environment : " + sf.DTE.Edition);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Language                   : " + sf.Language);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Locals");
        EnvDTE.Expressions expressions = sf.Locals;
        foreach(EnvDTE.Expression exp in expressions)
            owp.OutputString("\n    " + exp.Name + " = " + exp.Value);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Module                     : " + sf.Module);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Current Thread ID          : " + sf.Parent.ID);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Return Type                : " + sf.ReturnType);
    }
}
