Namespace:  System.Web.Management
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public virtual string ToString(
	bool includeAppInfo,
	bool includeCustomEventDetails


Type: System.Boolean

true if standard application information must be displayed as part of the event information; otherwise, false.

Type: System.Boolean

true if custom information must be displayed as part of the event information; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The event information.

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


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.
