Go Up to Debug Windows Index

View > Debug Windows > Call Stack

Displays the function calls that brought you to your current program location and the arguments passed to each function call. The Call Stack window lists the last function called, followed by each previously called function. The first function called is at the bottom of the list. If debug information is available for a function, it is followed by the arguments that were passed when the call was made.

Double-clicking an item in the Call Stack window displays both the source for the frame and the locals for the frame.

To toggle a breakpoint on a particular frame, either click the breakpoint icon in the far left column, or right-click the frame and click the Toggle Breakpoint command on the context menu. The icon in the far left column of the Call Stack window indicates the following:

  • A blue arrow (Stack Frame Arrow) indicates the top stack frame.
  • A red checkmark (Enabled Bkpt) indicates there is an enabled breakpoint set on a frame.
  • A grey checkmark (Indicator) indicates there is a disabled breakpoint set on a frame.
  • A blue circle (Frame has Symbols) indicates that the frame has debug information (symbols are available).
  • A grey circle (No Symbols) indicates that the frame has no debug information (no symbols are available).
