Signals the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) to inform the debugger that a break point has been tripped.
Assemblies: System.Reflection.Primitives (in System.Reflection.Primitives.dll)
mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
inform a debugger that a breakpoint has been reached.
No evaluation stack behaviors are performed by this operation.
The break instruction is for debugging support. It signals the CLI to inform the debugger that a break point has been tripped. It has no other effect on the interpreter state.
The break instruction has the smallest possible instruction size enabling code patching with a break point and generating minimal disturbance to the surrounding code.
The break instruction can trap to a debugger, do nothing, or raise a security exception. The exact behavior is implementation-defined.
The following Emit method overload can use the break opcode:
