int idaapi
attach_process(process_id_t pid=NO_PROCESS, int event_id=-1)
Attach to the process with PID pid. The process being attached to must be the same executable image as the one currently being disassembled in IDA. If the pid argument is NO_PROCESS, the user is prompted with a list of potential processes to attach to. The possible return codes are as follows, which is taken from dbg.hpp:

// -2 - impossible to find a compatible process
// -1 - impossible to attach to the given process (process died, privilege needed, not supported by the debugger plugin, ...)
// 0 - the user cancelled the attaching to the process
// 1 - the debugger properly attached to the process

Examples:
#include <dbg.hpp>

// Present the user with a list of processes to attach to. If there is no executable running that
// matches what's open in IDA, no dialog box will be presented.
int err;

if ((err = attach_process(NO_PROCESS)) == 1)
    msg("Successfully attached to process.\n");
else
    msg("Unable to attach, error: %d\n", err);
