DebuggerDisplayAttribute.Name Property

Gets or sets the name to display in the debugger variable windows.

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

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name to display in the debugger variable windows.

The value can contain curly braces ({ and }). Text within a pair of braces is evaluated as the name of a field, property, or method.

The following code example causes the name and value of each key to be displayed in the debugger variable windows. Without the attribute, the index and value type is displayed (for example: "[0] {KeyValuePairs}"). With the attribute applied, the display is the name of the key and its value (for example, if the first key is "one" and its value is 1, the display is: "one 1"). This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DebuggerDisplayAttribute class.

[DebuggerDisplay("{value}", Name = "{key}")]
internal class KeyValuePairs
{
    private IDictionary dictionary;
    private object key;
    private object value;

    public KeyValuePairs(IDictionary dictionary, object key, object value)
    {
        this.value = value;
        this.key = key;
        this.dictionary = dictionary;
    }
}
