Debugger.StepOut Method

Steps out of the current function.

Namespace: EnvDTE
Assembly: EnvDTE (in envdte.dll)

void StepOut (
	[OptionalAttribute] [InAttribute] bool WaitForBreakOrEnd
void StepOut (
	/** @attribute InAttribute() */ /** @attribute OptionalAttribute() */ boolean WaitForBreakOrEnd
function StepOut (
	WaitForBreakOrEnd : boolean



Set to true if this function call should wait until either Break mode or Design mode is entered before returning. Set to false if you want this call to return immediately after causing the debugger to begin execution. Upon return the debugger could be in Design, Break, or Run modes.

StepOut steps out of the current function. See Stepping for more information.

The following example demonstrates how to use the StepOut method.

To test this method:

  1. Set a breakpoint inside the function in the target application.

  2. Run the target application in Debug mode.

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