.idle_cmd (Set Idle Command)

The .idle_cmd command sets the idle command. This is a command that is executed whenever control returns from the target to the debugger. For example, when the target reaches a breakpoint, this command executes.


    .idle_cmd
.idle_cmd String 
.idle_cmd /d

Parameters

String

Specifies the string to which the idle command should be set.

/d

Clears the idle command.

Environment

This command cannot be used in script files.

Modes

user mode, kernel mode

Targets

live, crash dump

Platforms

all

 

Remarks

When .idle_cmd is used with no parameters it displays the current idle command.

In WinDbg, idle commands are stored in workspaces.

Here is an example. The idle command is set to r eax. Then, because the debugger is already idle, this command immediately executes, displaying the eax register:


windbg> .idle_cmd r eax 
Execute when idle: r eax
eax=003b0de8
