TraceSource.TraceEvent Method (TraceEventType, Int32, String)
Writes a trace event message to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection using the specified event type, event identifier, and message.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
[ConditionalAttribute("TRACE")] public void TraceEvent( TraceEventType eventType, int id, string message )
An attempt was made to trace an event during finalization.
The TraceEvent method is intended to trace events that can be processed automatically by tools. For example, a monitoring tool can notify an administrator if a specific event is traced by a specific source.
The TraceEvent method calls the ShouldTrace method of the SourceSwitch object returned by the Switch property. If ShouldTrace returns true, TraceEvent calls the corresponding TraceEvent method of each listener. Otherwise, TraceEvent returns without calling the listeners' methods.
The trace content is listener specific. If the method is not overridden by the listener implementation, the default output is the name of the trace source, its numeric identity, the event type, and the message. Additional trace content is dependent upon the listener's TraceOutputOptions property value.
The following code example shows the use of the TraceEvent(TraceEventType, Int32) method to pass a trace event to the listeners. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TraceSource class.
