ContinueDebugEvent function

Enables a debugger to continue a thread that previously reported a debugging event.

Syntax


BOOL WINAPI ContinueDebugEvent(
  _In_  DWORD dwProcessId,
  _In_  DWORD dwThreadId,
  _In_  DWORD dwContinueStatus
);

Parameters

dwProcessId [in]

The process identifier of the process to continue.

dwThreadId [in]

The thread identifier of the thread to continue. The combination of process identifier and thread identifier must identify a thread that has previously reported a debugging event.

dwContinueStatus [in]

The options to continue the thread that reported the debugging event.

ValueMeaning
DBG_CONTINUE
0x00010002L

If the thread specified by the dwThreadId parameter previously reported an EXCEPTION_DEBUG_EVENT debugging event, the function stops all exception processing and continues the thread. For any other debugging event, this flag simply continues the thread.

DBG_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
0x80010001L

If the thread specified by dwThreadId previously reported an EXCEPTION_DEBUG_EVENT debugging event, the function continues exception processing. If this is a first-chance exception event, the search and dispatch logic of the structured exception handler is used; otherwise, the process is terminated. For any other debugging event, this flag simply continues the thread.

 

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

Only the thread that created dwProcessId with the CreateProcess function can call ContinueDebugEvent.

After the ContinueDebugEvent function succeeds, the specified thread continues. Depending on the debugging event previously reported by the thread, different actions occur. If the continued thread previously reported an EXIT_THREAD_DEBUG_EVENT debugging event, ContinueDebugEvent closes the handle the debugger has to the thread. If the continued thread previously reported an EXIT_PROCESS_DEBUG_EVENT debugging event, ContinueDebugEvent closes the handles the debugger has to the process and to the thread.
