DebuggableAttribute Class


Modifies code generation for runtime just-in-time (JIT) debugging. This class cannot be inherited.

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

Public NotInheritable Class DebuggableAttribute
	Inherits Attribute

System_CAPS_pubmethodDebuggableAttribute(Boolean, Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggableAttribute class, using the specified tracking and optimization options for the just-in-time (JIT) compiler.


Initializes a new instance of the DebuggableAttribute class, using the specified debugging modes for the just-in-time (JIT) compiler.


Gets the debugging modes for the attribute.


Gets a value that indicates whether the runtime optimizer is disabled.


Gets a value that indicates whether the runtime will track information during code generation for the debugger.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The DebuggableAttribute controls how the runtime treats code within the module. The runtime might track extra information about generated code, and it might disable certain optimizations based on the values contained within this attribute.

A debugger might choose to ignore the DebuggableAttribute settings when loading an assembly. However, attaching a debugger to a running program may prevent the debugger from changing the settings because they have already been applied.

To use the DebuggableAttribute with dynamic assemblies using the Reflection Emit DefineDynamicModule methods, emit the DebuggableAttribute before calling the DefineDynamicModule methods to ensure that the settings are applied to the entire assembly.
