public methodstatic (Shared in Visual Basic)Exists Overloaded. Determines whether the specified log exists.
public methodstatic (Shared in Visual Basic)GetEventLogs Overloaded. Creates an array of the event logs.
public methodGetHashCode (inherited from Object) Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.
public methodGetLifetimeService (inherited from MarshalByRefObject) Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance.
public methodGetType (inherited from Object) Gets the Type of the current instance.
public methodInitializeLifetimeService (inherited from MarshalByRefObject) Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance.
public methodstatic (Shared in Visual Basic)LogNameFromSourceName Gets the name of the log to which the specified source is registered.
public methodstatic (Shared in Visual Basic)SourceExists Overloaded. Searches a computer's registry for a given event source.
public methodToString (inherited from Object) Returns a String that represents the current Object.
public methodWriteEntry Overloaded. Writes an entry in the event log.

Public Events

public eventDisposed (inherited from Component) Adds an event handler to listen to the Disposed event on the component.
public eventEntryWritten Occurs when an entry is written to an event log on the local computer.

Protected Properties

protected propertyDesignMode (inherited from Component) Gets a value that indicates whether the Component is currently in design mode.
protected propertyEvents (inherited from Component) Gets the list of event handlers that are attached to this Component.

Protected Methods

protected methodDispose Overloaded. Overridden. See Component.Dispose.
protected methodFinalize (inherited from Component) Overridden. Releases unmanaged resources and performs other cleanup operations before the Component is reclaimed by garbage collection.

In C# and C++, finalizers are expressed using destructor syntax.
