EventKeyword Class

Represents a keyword for an event. Keywords are defined in an event provider and are used to group the event with other similar events (based on the usage of the events).

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.Eventing.Reader
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public sealed class EventKeyword

NoteNote:

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

This class cannot be instantiated. A ProviderMetadata object defies a list of EventKeyword objects, one for each keyword used by the provider events. Each keyword is a bit in a 64-bit mask. Predefined bit values and reserved bits occupy the top 16 positions of this mask, leaving the manifest to use any bits between 0x0000000000000001 and 0x0000800000000000.

The standard event keywords are defined in the StandardEventKeywords enumeration.
