Debugger.Break Method

Signals a breakpoint to an attached debugger.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.Diagnostics.Debug (in System.Diagnostics.Debug.dll)

public static void Break()

ExceptionCondition
SecurityException

The System.Security.Permissions.UIPermission is not set to break into the debugger.

If no debugger is attached, users are asked if they want to attach a debugger. If yes, the debugger is started. If a debugger is attached, the debugger is signaled with a user breakpoint event, and the debugger suspends execution of the process just as if a debugger breakpoint had been hit.

The following code example demonstrates how to stop the debugger at the call to WriteLine.

Debugger.Break();
Console.WriteLine("Hello, world.");
