TraceSource.TraceInformation Method (String)

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Writes an informational message to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection using the specified message.

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

public void TraceInformation (
	string message
/** @attribute ConditionalAttribute("TRACE") */ 
public void TraceInformation (
	String message
public function TraceInformation (
	message : String



The informative message to write.

The TraceInformation method provides an informational message intended to be read by users and not by tools.

TraceInformation(String) calls the TraceEvent(TraceEventType,Int32,String) method, setting eventType to TraceEventType.Information and passing the informative message as the message string. The TraceEvent(TraceEventType,Int32,String) method in turn calls the TraceEvent(TraceEventCache,String,TraceEventType,Int32,String) method of each trace listener.
