Debug.Assert Method (Boolean)
Checks for a condition and outputs the call stack if the condition is false.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
Typically, the Assert method is used to identify logic errors during program development. evaluates a specified condition. If the result is false, it sends diagnostics to the debugger.
The overload outputs the call stack with file and line numbers for each line in the call stack.
The default behavior displays an Assert dialog box when the application runs in user-interface mode, and outputs the call stack to the debugger when in debug mode.
The Assert method behaves differently in Silverlight-based applications than it does in desktop applications. When an Assert occurs in Windows, a dialog box is displayed with two options, OK and Cancel. Cancel causes the debugger to break at the Assert statement; OK causes it to continue. On the Apple Macintosh OS X, the dialog box only provides the option to continue. In either case, if a debugger is not currently attached, you may attach one before you close the dialog box. On the Apple Macintosh OS X, managed debugging can be done only through remote debugging on a Windows computer by using a Visual Studio plug-in.
