StackFrame.GetFileColumnNumber Method

Gets the column number in the file that contains the code that is executing. This information is typically extracted from the debugging symbols for the executable.

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

public virtual int GetFileColumnNumber ()
public int GetFileColumnNumber ()
public function GetFileColumnNumber () : int

Return Value

The file column number. -or- Zero if the file column number cannot be determined.

The following code example demonstrates how you can use the GetFileColumnNumber method.

// Display the stack frame properties.
StackFrame sf = st.GetFrame(i);
Console.WriteLine(" File: {0}", sf.GetFileName());
Console.WriteLine(" Line Number: {0}", 
   sf.GetFileLineNumber());
// Note that the column number defaults to zero
// when not initialized.
Console.WriteLine(" Column Number: {0}", 
   sf.GetFileColumnNumber());
if (sf.GetILOffset() != StackFrame.OFFSET_UNKNOWN)
{
   Console.WriteLine(" Intermediate Language Offset: {0}", 
      sf.GetILOffset());
}
if (sf.GetNativeOffset() != StackFrame.OFFSET_UNKNOWN)
{
   Console.WriteLine(" Native Offset: {0}", 
      sf.GetNativeOffset());
}

// Display the stack frame properties.
StackFrame sf = st.GetFrame(i);
Console.WriteLine(" File: {0}", sf.GetFileName());
Console.WriteLine(" Line Number: {0}", (
    Int32)sf.GetFileLineNumber());

// Note that the column number defaults to zero
// when not initialized.
Console.WriteLine(" Column Number: {0}", 
    (Int32)sf.GetFileColumnNumber());
if (sf.GetILOffset() != StackFrame.OFFSET_UNKNOWN) {
    Console.WriteLine(" Intermediate Language Offset: {0}", 
        (Int32)sf.GetILOffset());
}
if (sf.GetNativeOffset() != StackFrame.OFFSET_UNKNOWN) {
    Console.WriteLine(" Native Offset: {0}", 
        (Int32)sf.GetNativeOffset());
}
