StackTrace Constructor (Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the StackTrace class from the caller's frame, optionally capturing source information.

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

public StackTrace (
	bool fNeedFileInfo
)
public StackTrace (
	boolean fNeedFileInfo
)
public function StackTrace (
	fNeedFileInfo : boolean
)

Parameters

fNeedFileInfo

true to capture the file name, line number, and column number; otherwise, false.

The StackTrace is created with the caller's current thread.

The following code example demonstrates various StackTrace constructor methods.

public void Level2Method()
{
   try 
   {
      ClassLevel3 nestedClass = new ClassLevel3();
      nestedClass.Level3Method();

   }
   catch (Exception e) 
   {
      Console.WriteLine(" Level2Method exception handler");

      // Display the full call stack at this level.
      StackTrace st1 = new StackTrace(true);
      Console.WriteLine(" Stack trace for this level: {0}",
         st1.ToString());

      // Build a stack trace from one frame, skipping the current
      // frame and using the next frame.
      StackTrace st2 = new StackTrace(new StackFrame(1, true));
      Console.WriteLine(" Stack trace built with next level frame: {0}",
         st2.ToString());

      // Build a stack trace skipping the current frame, and
      // including all the other frames.
      StackTrace st3 = new StackTrace(1, true);
      Console.WriteLine(" Stack trace built from the next level up: {0}",
         st3.ToString());

      Console.WriteLine();
      Console.WriteLine("   ... throwing exception to next level ...");
      Console.WriteLine("-------------------------------------------------\n");
      throw e;
   }
}

public void Level2Method() throws System.Exception
{
    try {
        ClassLevel3 nestedClass = new ClassLevel3();
        nestedClass.Level3Method();
    }
    catch (System.Exception e) {
        Console.WriteLine(" Level2Method exception handler");

        // Display the full call stack at this level.
        StackTrace st1 = new StackTrace(true);
        Console.WriteLine(" Stack trace for this level: {0}", 
            st1.ToString());

        // Build a stack trace from one frame, skipping the current
        // frame and using the next frame.
        StackTrace st2 = new StackTrace(new StackFrame(1, true));
        Console.WriteLine(" Stack trace built with next level frame: {0}",
            st2.ToString());

        // Build a stack trace skipping the current frame, and
        // including all the other frames.
        StackTrace st3 = new StackTrace(1, true);
        Console.WriteLine(" Stack trace built from the next level up: {0}",
            st3.ToString());
        Console.WriteLine();
        Console.WriteLine(" ... throwing exception to next level...");
        Console.WriteLine("--------------------------------------------"
            + "-----\n");
        throw e;
    }
} //Level2Method
