Child Elements


Parent Elements

Element Description


The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.


Specifies a listener that collects, stores, and routes messages. Listeners direct the tracing output to an appropriate target.


Specifies trace listeners that collect, store, and route messages and the level where a trace switch is set.


Configures the ASP.NET trace service.


Removing the DefaultTraceListener from the Listeners collection alters the behavior of the System.Diagnostics.Debug.Assert, System.Diagnostics.Trace.Assert, System.Diagnostics.Debug.Fail, and System.Diagnostics.Trace.Fail methods. Calling an Assert or Fail method normally results in the display of a message box, however the message box is not displayed if the DefaultTraceListener is not in the Listeners collection.

The following example shows how to remove the default trace listener from the trace Listeners collection.

      <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="0">
            <remove name="Default" />
