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

public virtual void TraceTransfer (
	TraceEventCache eventCache,
	string source,
	int id,
	string message,
	Guid relatedActivityId
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(false) */ 
public void TraceTransfer (
	TraceEventCache eventCache, 
	String source, 
	int id, 
	String message, 
	Guid relatedActivityId
public function TraceTransfer (
	eventCache : TraceEventCache, 
	source : String, 
	id : int, 
	message : String, 
	relatedActivityId : Guid



A TraceEventCache object that contains the current process ID, thread ID, and stack trace information.


A name used to identify the output, typically the name of the application that generated the trace event.


A numeric identifier for the event.


A message to write.


A Guid object identifying a related activity.


This method is not intended to be called directly by application code but by members of the Debug, Trace, and TraceSource classes to write trace data to output.

The TraceTransfer method is used for the correlation of related traces. The TraceTransfer method calls the TraceEvent method to process the call, with the eventType level set to Transfer and the relatedActivityIdGuid as a string appended to the message.
