DebuggerDisplayAttribute Constructor (String)

 

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerDisplayAttribute class.

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

public DebuggerDisplayAttribute(
	string value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.String

The string to be displayed in the value column for instances of the type; an empty string ("") causes the value column to be hidden.

The value parameter can contain braces ({ and }). The text within a pair of braces is evaluated as the name of a field, property, or method. For example, the following C# code causes "Count = 4" to be displayed when the plus sign (+) is selected to expand the debugger display for an instance of MyTable.

[DebuggerDisplay("Count = {count}")]
class MyTable
{
    public int count = 4;
}

The following code example causes the value of the Count property from the inherited Hashtable class to be displayed when the plus sign (+) is selected to expand the debugger display for an instance of MyHashtable. You must run the complete example, which is provided in the DebuggerDisplayAttribute class, to see the results.

[DebuggerDisplay("Count = {Count}")]
[DebuggerTypeProxy(typeof(HashtableDebugView))]
class MyHashtable : Hashtable
