EventLog Constructor (String, String)

Initializes a new instance of the EventLog class. Associates the instance with a log on the specified computer.

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

new : 
        logName:string * 
        machineName:string -> EventLog

Parameters

logName
Type: System.String
The name of the log on the specified computer.
machineName
Type: System.String
The computer on which the log exists.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

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

ArgumentException

The log name is invalid.

-or-

The computer name is invalid.

This overload sets the Log property to the logName parameter and the MachineName property to the machineName parameter. Before calling WriteEntry, specify the Source property of the EventLog. If you are only reading Entries from the log, you can alternatively specify only the Log and MachineName properties.

NoteNote

This overload of the constructor specifies the Log and MachineName properties, but you can change either before reading the Entries property.

The following table shows initial property values for an instance of EventLog.

Property

Initial Value

Source

An empty string ("").

Log

The logName parameter.

MachineName

The machineName parameter.

The following example reads entries in the event log, "myNewLog", on the computer "myServer".
