How to: Flag and Unflag Threads
For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.
You can flag a thread that you want to give special attention by marking it with an icon in the Threads, Parallel Stacks, Parallel Watch, and GPU Threads windows. This icon can help you and others distinguish flagged threads from other threads.
Flagged threads also receive special treatment in the Thread list on the Debug Location toolbar. This list can show all threads or only flagged threads. When you flag a thread, the Thread list automatically switches to show only flagged threads, but you can switch it back to show all threads as appropriate.
- In the Threads window, find the thread you are interested in and click the flag icon to select or clear the flag.
- In the Threads window, right-click any thread and then click Unflag All Threads.
- Choose the flag button in the debugging window.
On the toolbar at the top of the Threads window, click the flag icon.
In the drop-down list, click Flag Just My Code.
On the toolbar of the Threads window, click the flag icon.
