Disassembly Window

Visual Studio .NET 2003

To open the Disassembly window, you must be debugging. From the Debug menu, choose Windows and choose Disassembly.

Note   This feature is not available for script or SQL debugging.

The Disassembly window shows assembly code corresponding to the instructions created by the compiler. In addition, it can show the following optional information:

  • Memory address where each instruction is located. For native applications, this is the actual memory address. For C# or managed code, it is a pseudomemory address where the beginning of the application's memory space is location zero.
  • Source code from which the assembly code derives.
  • Code bytes, which are byte representations of the actual machine-code instructions.
  • Symbol names for the memory addresses.
  • Line numbers corresponding to the source code.

At the top of the Disassembly window is a toolbar with a single control:

To scroll the screen to a specified memory address, type the address in this box and press ENTER. The address can be either a numeric address or a function name. You can hide the toolbar by right-clicking the Disassembly window and clearing Show Toolbar on the shortcut menu.
