TraceListener.TraceEvent Method (TraceEventCache, String, TraceEventType, Int32)

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Writes trace and event information to the listener specific output.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)] 
public virtual void TraceEvent (
	TraceEventCache eventCache,
	string source,
	TraceEventType eventType,
	int id
)
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(false) */ 
public void TraceEvent (
	TraceEventCache eventCache, 
	String source, 
	TraceEventType eventType, 
	int id
)
ComVisibleAttribute(false) 
public function TraceEvent (
	eventCache : TraceEventCache, 
	source : String, 
	eventType : TraceEventType, 
	id : int
)

Parameters

eventCache

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

source

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

eventType

One of the TraceEventType values specifying the type of event that has caused the trace.

id

A numeric identifier for the event.

NoteImportant:

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 default implementation writes the values of the source, eventType and id parameters as a header. The eventCache data is written as a footer, the nature of the output data being dependent on the value of the TraceOutputOptions property.
