The Debugger object is used to interrogate and manipulate the state of the debugger and the program being debugged.

The following tables list the members exposed by the Debugger type.

  Name Description
Public property AllBreakpointsLastHit Gets a collection of bound breakpoints that were last simultaneously hit.  
Public property BreakpointLastHit Gets the last breakpoint hit. 
Public property Breakpoints Gets a collection of breakpoints. 
Public property CurrentMode Gets the current mode of the debugger within the context of the integrated development environment (IDE). 
Public property CurrentProcess Sets or gets the active process. 
Public property CurrentProgram Sets or gets the active program. 
Public property CurrentStackFrame Sets or gets the current stack frame. 
Public property CurrentThread Sets or gets the current thread being debugged. 
Public property DebuggedProcesses Gets the list of processes currently being debugged. 
Public property DTE Gets the top-level extensibility object. 
Public property HexDisplayMode Gets or sets whether expressions are output in hexadecimal or decimal format. 
Public property HexInputMode Gets or sets whether expressions are evaluated in hexadecimal or decimal format. 
Public property Languages Gets a list of languages that the debugger supports. 
Public property LastBreakReason Gets the last reason that a program was broken. If the program is running it returns DBG_REASON_NONE
Public property LocalProcesses Gets the list of processes currently running on this machine. 
Public property Parent Gets the immediate parent object of a Debugger object. 

  Name Description
Public method Break Causes the given process to pause its execution so that its current state can be analyzed.  
Public method DetachAll Detaches from all attached programs.  
Public method ExecuteStatement Executes the specified statement. If the TreatAsExpression flag is true, then the string is interpreted as an expression, and output is sent to the Command Window.  
Public method GetExpression Evaluates an expression based on the current stack frame. If the expression can be parsed but not evaluated, an object is returned but will not contain a valid value.  
Public method Go Starts executing the program from the current statement.  
Public method RunToCursor Executes the program to the current position of the source file cursor.  
Public method SetNextStatement Sets the next instruction to be executed, according to the cursor position in the current source file.  
Public method StepInto Steps into the next function call, if possible.  
Public method StepOut Steps out of the current function.  
Public method StepOver Steps over the next function call.  
Public method Stop Stops debugging, terminating, or detaching from all attached processes.  
Public method TerminateAll Terminates all processes.
