DebuggableAttribute Class

Modifies code generation for runtime just-in-time (JIT) debugging. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Diagnostics
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
<AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly Or AttributeTargets.Module, AllowMultiple:=False)> _
<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
Public NotInheritable Class DebuggableAttribute
	Inherits Attribute
'Usage
Dim instance As DebuggableAttribute

/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Module, AllowMultiple=false) */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class DebuggableAttribute extends Attribute
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Module, AllowMultiple=false) 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class DebuggableAttribute extends Attribute
Not applicable.

The DebuggableAttribute controls how the runtime treats code within the module. The runtime might track extra information about generated code, and it might disable certain optimizations based on the values contained within this attribute.

A debugger might choose to ignore the DebuggableAttribute settings when loading an assembly. However, attaching a debugger to a running program may prevent the debugger from changing the settings because they have already been applied.

To use the DebuggableAttribute with dynamic assemblies using the Reflection Emit DefineDynamicModule methods, emit the DebuggableAttribute before calling the DefineDynamicModule methods to ensure that the settings are applied to the entire assembly.
