TextWriterTraceListener Constructor (String)

Initializes a new instance of the TextWriterTraceListener class, using the file as the recipient of the debugging and tracing output.

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

public TextWriterTraceListener(
	string fileName
)

Parameters

fileName
Type: System.String
The name of the file the TextWriterTraceListener writes to.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The file is null.

This constructor initializes the Name property to an empty string ("").

The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener(String) constructor, then adds it 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.


using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using Microsoft.VisualBasic;

class TWTLConStringMod
{

    // args(0) is the specification of the trace log file.
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {

        // Verify that a parameter was entered.
        if (args.Length==0)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Enter a trace file specification.");

        }
        else
        {
            // Create a TextWriterTraceListener object that takes a 
            // file specification.
            TextWriterTraceListener textListener;
            try
            {
                textListener = new TextWriterTraceListener(args[0]);
                Trace.Listeners.Add(textListener);
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Error creating TextWriterTraceListener for trace " +
                    "file \"{0}\":\r\n{1}", args[0], ex.Message);
                return;
            }

            // Write these messages only to the TextWriterTraceListener.
            textListener.WriteLine("This is trace listener named \""+textListener.Name+"\"");
            textListener.WriteLine("Trace written to a file: " +
                "\r\n    \""+args[0]+"\"");

            // Write a message to all trace listeners.
            Trace.WriteLine(String.Format("This trace message written {0} to all listeners.", DateTime.Now));

            // Flush and close the output.
            Trace.Flush();
            textListener.Flush();
            textListener.Close();
        }
    }
}
