dotTrace 2018.3 Help

Creating and Applying Filters

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

To add a new filter by module* name:

  1. On the menu bar, choose View | Options. The Options dialog opens.

  2. Select the System module folding item in the left tab.

  3. Click Add to add a new module. The Add Module dialog 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.
