TextWriterTraceListener Constructor (TextWriter)

Initializes a new instance of the TextWriterTraceListener class using the specified writer as recipient of the tracing or debugging output.

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

public:
TextWriterTraceListener(
	TextWriter^ writer
)

Parameters

writer
Type: System.IO::TextWriter
A TextWriter that receives the output from the TextWriterTraceListener.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The writer is nullptr.

This constructor initializes the Name property to an empty string ("").

The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener(TextWriter) 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 a message to all TraceListener objects in the TraceListenerCollection, then closes this TextWriterTraceListener.


#using <System.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
using namespace System::Diagnostics;

void main()
{
   #if defined(TRACE)
   TextWriterTraceListener^ myTextListener = nullptr;

   // Create a file for output named TestFile.txt.
   String^ myFileName = "TestFile.txt";
   StreamWriter^ myOutputWriter = gcnew StreamWriter( myFileName,true );

   // Add a TextWriterTraceListener for the file.
   if ( myOutputWriter )
   {
      myTextListener = gcnew TextWriterTraceListener( myOutputWriter );
      Trace::Listeners->Add( myTextListener );
   }

   // Write trace output to all trace listeners.
   Trace::WriteLine( 
      String::Concat( DateTime::Now.ToString(), " - Trace output" ) );
   if ( myTextListener )
   {
      // Remove and close the file writer/trace listener.
      myTextListener->Flush();
      Trace::Listeners->Remove( myTextListener );
      myTextListener->Close();
   }
   #endif
}
