TraceListener.TraceEvent Method (TraceEventCache, String, TraceEventType, Int32, String)


Writes trace information, a message, and event information to the listener specific output.

Namespace:   System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public virtual void TraceEvent(
	TraceEventCache eventCache,
	string source,
	TraceEventType eventType,
	int id,
	string message


Type: System.Diagnostics.TraceEventCache

A TraceEventCache object that contains the current process ID, thread ID, and stack trace information.

Type: System.String

A name used to identify the output, typically the name of the application that generated the trace event.

Type: System.Diagnostics.TraceEventType

One of the TraceEventType values specifying the type of event that has caused the trace.

Type: System.Int32

A numeric identifier for the event.

Type: System.String

A message to write.


This method is not intended to be called directly by application code but by members of the Debug, Trace, and TraceSource classes to write trace data to output.

The default implementation writes the values of the source, eventType and id parameters as a header, followed by the message data. The eventCache data is written as a footer, the nature of the output data being dependent on the value of the TraceOutputOptions property.
