Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The name of the source.

The name parameter is used to set the value of the DisplayName property.

To set the level of your SourceSwitch, edit the configuration file that corresponds to the name of your application. Within this file, you can add a switch and set its value, remove a switch, or clear all the switches previously set by the application. To add a source switch, the configuration file should be formatted as shown in the following example.

<configuration>
  <system.diagnostics>
    <switches>
      <add name="SourceSwitch" value="Verbose" ></add>
    </switches>
  </system.diagnostics>
