Thread.Location Property

Gets the address at which the thread was executing code when the process was stopped for debugging.

Namespace:  EnvDTE
Assembly:  EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)
string Location { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string value that represents the address at which the thread was executing code whenthe process was stopped for debugging.

If the code being debugged has associated symbols, Location returns a function name. If the code being debugged has no associated symbols, Location returns a numeric address.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Location property.

To test this property

  1. Set the breakpoint inside the worker thread callback method.

  2. Run the target application in the debug mode.

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

public static void TestThreadProperties(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("Thread Test");
    owp.Activate();

    EnvDTE.Threads threads = dte.Debugger.CurrentProgram.Threads;
    owp.OutputString("\nNumber of items in the Thread collection: " + 
                     threads.Item(1).Collection.Count + "\n");
    foreach(EnvDTE.Thread thread in threads)
    {
        owp.OutputString("\nThread: " + thread.ID + "  Name: " + thread.Name);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Edition of the environment : " + thread.DTE.Edition);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Is alive                   : " + thread.IsAlive);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Is frozen                  : " + thread.IsFrozen);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Location                   : " + thread.Location);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Parent's current mode      : " + thread.Parent.CurrentMode);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Priority                   : " + thread.Priority);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Program name               : " + thread.Program.Name);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Number of stack frames     : " + thread.StackFrames.Count);
        owp.OutputString("\n  Suspended number of times  : " + thread.SuspendCount);
    }
}
