Trace.Indent Method

Increases the current IndentLevel by one.

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

[ConditionalAttribute("TRACE")] 
public static void Indent ()
/** @attribute ConditionalAttribute("TRACE") */ 
public static void Indent ()
ConditionalAttribute("TRACE") 
public static function Indent ()
Not applicable.

The following example increments and decrements the indent level and emits tracing messages.

Trace.WriteLine("List of errors:");
 Trace.Indent();
 Trace.WriteLine("Error 1: File not found");
 Trace.WriteLine("Error 2: Directory not found");
 Trace.Unindent();
 Trace.WriteLine("End of list of errors");
   

Trace.WriteLine("List of errors:");
Trace.Indent();
Trace.WriteLine("Error 1: File not found");
Trace.WriteLine("Error 2: Directory not found");
Trace.Unindent();
Trace.WriteLine("End of list of errors");

Trace.WriteLine("List of errors:")
Trace.Indent()
Trace.WriteLine("Error 1: File not found")
Trace.WriteLine("Error 2: Directory not found")
Trace.Unindent()
Trace.WriteLine("End of list of errors")


This example produces the following output:


List of errors:
     Error 1: File not found
     Error 2: Directory not found
End of list of errors
