Method call stack

Posted on 2007-11-14

Could I have a code snippet to obtain the method call stack, maybe in an array, for debugging purposes.
I intend to dump the stack when an error is intercepted.
If Main, calls Method1, which calls Method2,
I'd like to have some kind of structure which holds:
as its contents.

I'd be extra happy if I could also have some structure holding all current local variables.  Wow - that would be helpful as something to write out to an error log for inspection after failure.

try using Environment.StackTrace

As for the locals, I am thinking about it, but it is a tough one

Very cool about StackTrace. Works like a champ.  Thanks.
Maybe I'll put the locals question separately - you got points!
