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

Public Sub New

This constructor initializes a ConsoleTraceListener object to write messages to the Console.Out stream. Its Name property is initialized to an empty string ("").

The following code example initializes a ConsoleTraceListener object for the specified Console output stream and adds it to the trace listener collection. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ConsoleTraceListener class.

' Define a trace listener to direct trace output from this method
' to the console.
Dim consoleTracer As ConsoleTraceListener

' Check the command line arguments to determine which
' console stream should be used for trace output.
If (CmdArgs.Length > 0) AndAlso _
   (CmdArgs(0).ToLower.Equals("/stderr")) Then
    ' Initialize the console trace listener to write
    ' trace output to the standard error stream.
    consoleTracer = New ConsoleTraceListener(True)
    ' Initialize the console trace listener to write
    ' trace output to the standard output stream.
    consoleTracer = New ConsoleTraceListener
End If
' Set the name of the trace listener, which helps identify this 
' particular instance within the trace listener collection.
consoleTracer.Name = "mainConsoleTracer"

' Write the initial trace message to the console trace listener.
consoleTracer.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToString() & " [" & _
     consoleTracer.Name & "] - Starting output to trace listener.")

' Add the new console trace listener to 
' the collection of trace listeners.
