Creating and Applying Filters

dotTrace lets you create filters to gray out or fold sets of functions in views.

To add a new filter

  1. On the menu bar, choose View | Options. The Options dialog box opens.
  2. Select the System module folding item in the left tab.
  3. Click Add to add a new module. The Add Module dialog box opens.
  4. Choose a category and define a name for a new module. Click OK.
  5. The new module appears as a child in the module tree.
  6. Click OK to save your changes.

If the check box near a node in the module tree is selected, the corresponding filter is active. Otherwise it's not active and doesn't perform any filtering.


If while working with a view you face classes of functions that you don't want to be shown, you can also create a new filter for them from any view.

To filter functions from a particular assembly

  1. Select a function.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the menu bar, choose Edit | Filter functions from assembly 'name'.
    • Right-click the selected function, and choose Filter functions from assembly 'name' in the context menu.

A new filter is added as a subnode of the User-defined Group node.
