Property Value

Type: System.Diagnostics.EventLogEntry

An EventLogEntry that represents the entry that was written to the event log.

The following example assumes that you have already implemented the sample in EntryWrittenEventArgs(EventLogEntry).

It creates a custom EventLog object and writes an entry into it. Then it creates an EntryWrittenEventArgs object using the first entry in the custom EventLog. This object is used to notify a message.

protected static void MyOnEntry(Object source, EntryWrittenEventArgs e)
    EventLogEntry myEventLogEntry = e.Entry;
    if (myEventLogEntry != null)
        Console.WriteLine("Current message entry is: '"
                          + myEventLogEntry.Message + "'");
        Console.WriteLine("The current entry is null");
