This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Gets the compressed stack for the current thread.

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

public static CompressedStack GetCompressedStack()

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.CompressedStack

A CompressedStack for the current thread.

Exception Condition

A caller in the call chain does not have permission to access unmanaged code.


The request for StrongNameIdentityPermission failed.

If security is enabled, the current compressed stack is returned. If security is disabled, GetCompressedStack returns an empty CompressedStack object.


This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.


This member also makes a link demand for the ECMA public key, which is not a valid cryptographic key but a pseudo key. Within the .NET Framework the link demand for the ECMA pseudo key is automatically converted to a link demand for the Microsoft public key. The security exception is based on the Microsoft public key, not the ECMA pseudo key.


Requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
