DebuggerStepperBoundaryAttribute Class


Indicates the code following the attribute is to be executed in run, not step, mode.

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


[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Constructor | AttributeTargets.Method, 
	Inherited = false)]
public sealed class DebuggerStepperBoundaryAttribute : Attribute


Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerStepperBoundaryAttribute class.


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 DebuggerStepperBoundaryAttribute attribute is used as an escape from the effect of a DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute. When executing within the boundaries of the DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute, designer-provided code is executed as a step-through until the next user supplied code is encountered. When context switches are made on a thread, the next user-supplied code module stepped into may not relate to the code that was in the process of being debugged. To avoid this debugging experience, use the DebuggerStepperBoundaryAttribute to escape from stepping through code to running code. For example, in Visual Studio 2005, encountering a DebuggerStepperBoundaryAttribute while stepping through code using the F10 key (or Step Over command) has the same effect as pressing the F5 key or using the Start Debugging command.
