Namespace:   EnvDTE90
Assembly:  EnvDTE90 (in EnvDTE90.dll)

public interface ExceptionGroups : IEnumerable


Gets a value indicating the number of exception groups in the collection.


Gets the top-level extensibility object.


Gets the immediate parent object of this collection, in this case the Debugger3 object.


Gets an enumeration for items in a collection.


Gets an indexed member of this collection.


Resets the BreakWhenThrown and BreakWhenUserUnhandled properties to their original values for both user-defined and built-in types. User-defined exceptions are not removed.

By default, the exception types are organized into the following groups:

  • Visual C++ Exceptions — Exceptions thrown from native code.

  • Common Language Runtime (CLR) Exceptions — Exceptions thrown in managed code.

  • Managed Debugging Assistants — Errors reported to the debugger that indicate problems in the program being debugged, but are not actual exceptions.

  • Native Run-time checks — Errors reported by the CRT for common programming errors.

  • Win32 Exceptions — Operating system error codes such as Control + C and Access Violation.

Third party debugging engines can also add items to this list. This is a normal enumerable collection, indexable by either group name and by integer index.
