EventLogEntryCollection.Count Property

Gets the number of entries in the event log (that is, the number of elements in the EventLogEntry collection).

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

public int Count { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of entries currently in the event log.

Implements

ICollection.Count

An EventLogEntryCollection represents a dynamic list of all the entries in a log. Therefore, the Count property can change during the lifetime of the EventLogEntryCollection instance that you create. It is usually best to work with the Count property directly instead of assigning its value to a variable.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Count property to iterate through an EventLogEntryCollection object.

// Create a new EventLog object.
EventLog myEventLog1 = new EventLog();
myEventLog1.Log = myLogName;
// Obtain the Log Entries of the Event Log
EventLogEntryCollection myEventLogEntryCollection = myEventLog1.Entries;
Console.WriteLine("The number of entries in 'MyNewLog' = " +
                        myEventLogEntryCollection.Count);
// Display the 'Message' property of EventLogEntry. 
for (int i = 0; i < myEventLogEntryCollection.Count; i++)
{
    Console.WriteLine("The Message of the EventLog is :" +
                            myEventLogEntryCollection[i].Message);
}
