context thread-selector [...]

Syntax Elements

Specifies a string that selects one or more UDF threads being debugged.

Usage Notes

You can specify one or more specific threads, or all threads to include all currently active threads. When the context contains multiple threads, commands operate on all of them serially. The output for each thread contains a line that identifies the thread followed by a line of command-related information. After a breakpoint or other exception stops a thread, the context defaults to that thread making it the current context.

You can use @ as a synonym for the context command. If context is used, it must be fully spelled out.
