EntryWrittenEventArgs Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the EntryWrittenEventArgs class.

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

public EntryWrittenEventArgs()

The following example demonstrates the EntryWrittenEventArgs constructor. 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.

using System;
using System.Diagnostics;

class MySample
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        try
        {
            EventLog myNewLog = new EventLog();
            myNewLog.Log = "MyNewLog";
            myNewLog.Source = "MySource";
            // Create the source if it does not exist already. 
            if (!EventLog.SourceExists("MySource"))
            {
                // An event log source should not be created and immediately used. 
                // There is a latency time to enable the source, it should be created 
                // prior to executing the application that uses the source. 
                // Execute this sample a second time to use the new source.
                EventLog.CreateEventSource("MySource", "MyNewLog");
                Console.WriteLine("CreatingEventSource");
                Console.WriteLine("Exiting, execute the application a second time to use the source.");
                // The source is created.  Exit the application to allow it to be registered. 
                return;
            }
            // Write an entry to the EventLog.
            myNewLog.WriteEntry("The Latest entry in the Event Log");
            int myEntries = myNewLog.Entries.Count;
            EventLogEntry entry = myNewLog.Entries[myEntries - 1];
            EntryWrittenEventArgs myEntryEventArgs =
                                 new EntryWrittenEventArgs();
            MyOnEntry(myNewLog, myEntryEventArgs);
        }
        catch (Exception e)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Exception Raised" + e.Message);
        }
    }
    protected static void MyOnEntry(Object source, EntryWrittenEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Entry == null)
            Console.WriteLine("A new entry is written in MyNewLog.");
    }
}
