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
)
public TextWriterTraceListener (
	String fileName
)
public function TextWriterTraceListener (
	fileName : String
)

Parameters

fileName

The name of the file the TextWriterTraceListener writes to.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

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

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.
