EventSource.SendCommand Method

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Sends a command to a specified event source.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.Tracing
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.Diagnostics.Tracing (in System.Diagnostics.Tracing.dll)

public static void SendCommand(
	EventSource eventSource,
	EventCommand command,
	IDictionary<string, string> commandArguments


Type: System.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource

The event source to send the command to.

Type: System.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventCommand

The event command to send.

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IDictionary<String, String>

The arguments for the event command.

Calling SendCommand forwards the command to the OnEventCommand callback. What the EventSource does with the command and its arguments is specific to the event source. The command and command arguments are passed to the OnEventCommand callback of the specified event source. If possible, the current event source should not affect other event listeners' filtering events; however, that may not be possible if the command causes a garbage collection, a system flush, or some other global activity.
