FunctionTailcall3WithInfo Function

Notifies the profiler that the currently executing function is about to perform a tail call to another function, and provides a handle that can be passed to the ICorProfilerInfo3::GetFunctionTailcall3Info method to retrieve the stack frame.


void __stdcall FunctionTailcall3WithInfo(  
               [in] FunctionIDOrClientID functionIDOrClientID,  
               [in] COR_PRF_ELT_INFO eltInfo);  


functionIDOrClientID [in] The identifier of the currently executing function that is about to make a tail call.

eltInfo [in] An opaque handle that represents information about a given stack frame. This handle is valid only during the callback to which it is passed.


The FunctionTailcall3WithInfo callback method notifies the profiler as functions are called, and allows the profiler to use the ICorProfilerInfo3::GetFunctionTailcall3Info method to inspect the stack frame. To access stack frame information, the COR_PRF_ENABLE_FRAME_INFO flag has to be set. The profiler can use the ICorProfilerInfo::SetEventMask method to set the event flags, and then use the ICorProfilerInfo3::SetEnterLeaveFunctionHooks3WithInfo method to register your implementation of this function.

The FunctionTailcall3WithInfo function is a callback; you must implement it. The implementation must use the __declspec(naked) storage-class attribute.

The execution engine does not save any registers before calling this function.

  • On entry, you must save all registers that you use, including those in the floating-point unit (FPU).

  • On exit, you must restore the stack by popping off all the parameters that were pushed by its caller.

The implementation of FunctionTailcall3WithInfo should not block, because it will delay garbage collection. The implementation should not attempt a garbage collection, because the stack may not be in a garbage collection-friendly state. If a garbage collection is attempted, the runtime will block until FunctionTailcall3WithInfo returns.

Also, the FunctionTailcall3WithInfo function must not call into managed code or cause a managed memory allocation in any way.
