Write to the Output Window in C#

  1. Write to the Debug Window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE With the Debug.Write() Method in C
  2. Write to the Debug Window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE With the Debug.WriteLine() Method in C
  3. Write to the Debug Window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE With the Debug.Print() Method in C

This tutorial will discuss how to write data to the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window in C#.

Write to the Debug Window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE With the Debug.Write() Method in C

The Debug.Write() method in C# writes the information to the debug window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE. It works just like the conventional Console.Write() method but prints to the debug window. We have to use the System.Diagnostics namespace to use the Debug.Write() method in C#. The following code example shows us how we can write something to the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window with the Debug.Write() method in C#.

using System.Diagnostics;
namespace write_to_debug_window
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Debug.Write("Hello, This is written in the Debug window");
        }
    }
}

Debug Window Output:

Hello, This is written in the Debug window

In the above code, we printed the message Hello, This is written in the Debug window in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window. This output only appears in the debug window if we run our application in the debug mode. To run our application in the debug mode, we have to run our application by clicking on the Start button on the top. There are a few more functions like the Debug.Write() method discussed below.

Write to the Debug Window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE With the Debug.WriteLine() Method in C

The Debug.WriteLine() method in C# writes the information to the debug window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE in. It works just like the conventional Console.WriteLine() method but prints to the debug window. The difference between the Debug.Write() method and the Debug.WriteLine() method is that the Debug.Write() method only writes the string to the debug window, but the Debug.WriteLine() method writes the string and takes a whole line in the debug window. The following code example shows us how we can use the Debug.WriteLine() method to print a whole line to the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window.

using System.Diagnostics;
namespace write_to_debug_window
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Debug.WriteLine("This is line1 in the Debug window");
            Debug.WriteLine("This is line2 in the Debug window");
        }
    }
}

Debug Window Output:

This is line1 in the Debug window
This is line2 in the Debug window

In the above code, we printed two lines in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window with the Debug.WriteLine() method.

Write to the Debug Window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE With the Debug.Print() Method in C

The Debug.Print() method in C# can also write the information to the debug window of the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE. It can also print a line in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window just like the Debug.WriteLine() method. See the following example.

using System.Diagnostics;
namespace write_to_debug_window
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Debug.Print("This is the print method");
            Debug.Print("This is the 2nd print method");
        }
    }
}

Debug Window Output:

This is the print method
This is the 2nd print method

In the above code, we printed two lines in the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE debug window with the Debug.Print() method.
