IDebugControl::OutputPrompt method

The OutputPrompt method formats and sends a user prompt to the output callback objects.

Syntax


HRESULT OutputPrompt(
  [in]           ULONG OutputControl,
  [in, optional] PCSTR Format,
                       ...
);

Parameters

OutputControl [in]

Specifies an output control that determines which of the client's output callbacks will receive the output. For possible values, see DEBUG_OUTCTL_XXX.

Format [in, optional]

Specifies the format string, as in printf. Typically, conversion characters work exactly as they do in C. For the floating-point conversion characters, the 64-bit argument is interpreted as a 32-bit floating-point number unless the l modifier is used.

The %p conversion character is supported, but it represents a pointer in a target's address space. It might not have any modifiers and it uses the debugger's internal address formatting. The following additional conversion characters are supported.

CharacterArgument typeArgumentText printed

%p

ULONG64

Pointer in an address space.

The value of the pointer.

%N

DWORD_PTR (32 or 64 bits, depending on the host's architecture)

Pointer in the host's virtual address space.

The value of the pointer. (This is equivalent to the standard C %p character.)

%I

ULONG64

Any 64-bit value.

The specified value. If this is greater than 0xFFFFFFFF, it is printed as a 64-bit value; otherwise, it is printed as a 32-bit value.

%ma

ULONG64

Address of a NULL-terminated ASCII string in the process' virtual address space.

The specified string.

%mu

ULONG64

Address of a NULL-terminated Unicode string in the process's virtual address space.

The specified string.

%msa

ULONG64

Address of an ANSI_STRING structure in the process's virtual address space.

The specified string.

%msu

ULONG64

Address of a UNICODE_STRING structure in the process's virtual address space.

The specified string.

%y

ULONG64

Address in the process's virtual address space of an item with symbol information.

String that contains the name of the specified symbol (and displacement, if any).

%ly

ULONG64

Address in the process's virtual address space of an item with symbol information.

String that contains the name of the specified symbol (and displacement, if any), as well as any available source line information.

 

If Format is NULL, only the standard prompt text is sent to the output callbacks.

...

Specifies additional parameters that represent values to be inserted into the output during formatting.

Return value

Return codeDescription
S_OK

The method was successful.

 

This method can also return error values. See Return Values for more details.

Remarks

OutputPrompt and OutputPromptWide can be used to prompt the user for input.

The standard prompt will be sent to the output callbacks before the formatted text described by Format. The contents of the standard prompt is returned by the method GetPromptText.

The prompt text is sent to the output callbacks with the DEBUG_OUTPUT_PROMPT output mask set.

For more information about prompting the user, see Using Input and Output.
