C# – How to find the method that called the current method

.netc++loggingstack-tracesystem.diagnostics

When logging in C#, how can I learn the name of the method that called the current method? I know all about System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod(), but I want to go one step beneath this in the stack trace. I've considered parsing the stack trace, but I am hoping to find a cleaner more explicit way, something like Assembly.GetCallingAssembly() but for methods.

Best Solution

Try this:

using System.Diagnostics;
// Get call stack
StackTrace stackTrace = new StackTrace(); 
// Get calling method name
Console.WriteLine(stackTrace.GetFrame(1).GetMethod().Name);

one-liner:

(new System.Diagnostics.StackTrace()).GetFrame(1).GetMethod().Name

It is from Get Calling Method using Reflection [C#].
