public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String

The event information.

The ToString method is generally invoked by the provider that processes the event. The method ensures that the standard WebApplicationInformation object is provided with the event-specific data. It formats event information by calling the event-specific FormatCustomEventDetails method.


When you format your custom event information for display, override the FormatCustomEventDetails method rather than the ToString method. This will avoid overwriting or tampering with sensitive system information.

The following code example shows how to use the ToString method

// Implements the ToString() method.
public override string ToString()
    return base.ToString();
