TextWriterTraceListener Constructor (TextWriter, String)

Initializes a new instance of the TextWriterTraceListener class with the specified name, using the specified writer as recipient of the tracing or debugging output.

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

public TextWriterTraceListener (
	TextWriter writer,
	string name
)
public TextWriterTraceListener (
	TextWriter writer, 
	String name
)
public function TextWriterTraceListener (
	writer : TextWriter, 
	name : String
)

Parameters

writer

A TextWriter that receives the output from the TextWriterTraceListener.

name

The name of the new instance.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

The writer is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener(TextWriter,String) constructor. The example creates a StreamWriter, then references the StreamWriter when it creates the TextWriterTraceListener, which it then adds to the TraceListenerCollection. The example writes two messages to this TextWriterTraceListener, then writes a message to all TraceListener objects in the TraceListenerCollection. Finally, it flushes and closes the TextWriterTraceListener.
