Detect Recursive Calls in Your .NET Code

Detect Recursive Calls in Your .NET Code

Here’s a way you can check whether the current method is recursive. The following method returns True when your application is in a recursive method:

Public Function CheckRecursion() As Boolean        Dim myTrace As New System.Diagnostics.StackTrace()        'If stack layer count less 3 , recursion impossible.        If myTrace.FrameCount < 3 Then            Return False        End If        Dim mh As System.IntPtr = myTrace.GetFrame(1).GetMethod().MethodHandle.Value        For iCount As Integer = 2 To myTrace.FrameCount - 1            Dim m As System.Reflection.MethodBase = myTrace.GetFrame(iCount).GetMethod()            If m.MethodHandle.Value = mh Then                Return True            End If        Next        Return False    End Function
