DebuggerBrowsableState Enumeration

Provides display instructions for the debugger.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public enum DebuggerBrowsableState

Member nameDescription
NeverNever show the element.
CollapsedShow the element as collapsed.
RootHiddenDo not display the root element; display the child elements if the element is a collection or array of items.

DebuggerBrowsableState is used to simplify the view in the debug window. Use of the DebuggerDisplayAttribute attribute using this enumeration can result in a much simpler and more pleasing view in the debug window. See the DebuggerBrowsableAttribute class for information on the use of this enumeration.

The following code example shows the use of the DebuggerBrowsableState enumeration to instruct the debugger to not display the root (property name) of the Keys property, but to display the elements of the array that Keys gets. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DebuggerDisplayAttribute class.

[DebuggerBrowsable(DebuggerBrowsableState.RootHidden)]
public KeyValuePairs[] Keys
{
   get 
   {
       KeyValuePairs[] keys = new KeyValuePairs[hashtable.Count];

      int i = 0;
      foreach(object key in hashtable.Keys)
      {
         keys[i] = new KeyValuePairs(hashtable, key, hashtable[key]);
         i++;
      }
   return keys;
   }
}
