The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener(TextWriter,String) constructor. The example creates a StreamWriter, then references the StreamWriter when it creates the TextWriterTraceListener, which it then adds to the TraceListenerCollection. The example writes two messages to this TextWriterTraceListener, then writes a message to all TraceListener objects in the TraceListenerCollection. Finally, it flushes and closes the TextWriterTraceListener.
