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

virtual void TraceData(
	TraceEventCache^ eventCache,
	String^ source,
	TraceEventType eventType,
	int id,
	Object^ data


Type: System.Diagnostics::TraceEventCache^

A TraceEventCache object that contains the current process ID, thread ID, and stack trace information.

Type: System::String^

A name used to identify the output, typically the name of the application that generated the trace event.

Type: System.Diagnostics::TraceEventType

One of the TraceEventType values specifying the type of event that has caused the trace.

Type: System::Int32

A numeric identifier for the event.

Type: System::Object^

The trace data to emit.


This method is not intended to be called directly by application code but by members of the Debug, Trace, and TraceSource classes to write trace data to output.

The default implementation writes the eventCache, source, eventType and id parameters in the header and footer of the trace. The data parameter is written as the body of the trace message. The ToString method of the data object is used to convert the object to a String.
