TextWriterTraceListener.TextWriterTraceListener() Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the TextWriterTraceListener class with TextWriter as the output recipient.

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

public TextWriterTraceListener ()
public TextWriterTraceListener ()
public function TextWriterTraceListener ()
Not applicable.

This constructor uses the TextWriter stream as the recipient of the tracing or debugging output. Its Name is initialized to "TextWriter".

The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener constructor. It sets the Writer property to console output, and then adds the TextWriterTraceListener to the TraceListenerCollection. It writes a message in two segments, and then closes the TextWriterTraceListener.

public class Sample
{

public static void Main(string[] args) {
    /* Create a text writer that writes to the console screen and add
     * it to the trace listeners */
    TextWriterTraceListener myWriter = new TextWriterTraceListener();
    myWriter.Writer = System.Console.Out;
    Trace.Listeners.Add(myWriter);
 
    // Write the output to the console screen.
    myWriter.Write("Write to the Console screen. ");
    myWriter.WriteLine("Again, write to console screen.");
 
    // Flush and close the output.
    myWriter.Flush();
    myWriter.Close();
 }

}

public class Sample
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        /* Create a text writer that writes to the console screen and add
           it to the trace listeners 
        */
        TextWriterTraceListener myWriter = new TextWriterTraceListener();
        myWriter.set_Writer(System.Console.get_Out());
        Trace.get_Listeners().Add(myWriter);
        // Write the output to the console screen.
        myWriter.Write("Write to the Console screen. ");
        myWriter.WriteLine("Again, write to console screen.");
        // Flush and close the output.
        myWriter.Flush();
        myWriter.Close();
    } //main
} //Sample
