TraceContextRecord Class


Represents an ASP.NET trace message and any associated data.

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


public sealed class TraceContextRecord

System_CAPS_pubmethodTraceContextRecord(String, String, Boolean, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the TraceContextRecord class.


Gets the user-defined category for the trace record.


Gets the Exception associated with the trace record, if one is available.


Gets a value indicating whether the trace record is associated with a TraceContext.Warn method call.


Gets the user-defined trace message.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The TraceContextRecord object encapsulates the trace message, category, any associated Exception, and whether the trace record was written by the TraceContext.Warn method.

Every call to the TraceContext.Write and TraceContext.Warn methods generates a TraceContextRecord object that is added to the TraceContextEventArgs.TraceRecords messages collection. You can access the collection of records by handling the TraceFinished event.

The following code example demonstrates how you can register a TraceContextEventHandler delegate to handle the TraceFinished event. In this example, the OnTraceFinished method accesses the collection of TraceContextRecord objects through the TraceRecords property, iterates through them, and writes them to the response stream.

<%@ Page language="c#" Trace="true" %>
<script runat="server">
void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // Register a handler for the TraceFinished event.
    Trace.TraceFinished += new 

    // Write a trace message.
    Trace.Write("Web Forms Infrastructure Methods", "USERMESSAGE: Page_Load complete.");

// A TraceContextEventHandler for the TraceFinished event.
void OnTraceFinished(object sender, TraceContextEventArgs e)
    TraceContextRecord r = null;    

    // Iterate through the collection of trace records and write 
    // them to the response stream.
    foreach(object o in e.TraceRecords)
        r = (TraceContextRecord)o;
        Response.Write(String.Format("trace message: {0} <BR>", r.Message));
