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

public void StartLogicalOperation(
	Object operationId


Type: System.Object
An object identifying the operation.


The operationId parameter is null.

The operationId parameter can be any object, such as a String that allows the operation to be identified for tracing purposes. The object represented by operationId is added to the LogicalOperationStack property.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the StartLogicalOperation(Object) method by initializing a logical operation to be associated with the main thread. For the complete code example, see the CorrelationManager class.

TraceSource ts = new TraceSource("MyApp");
int i = ts.Listeners.Add(new ConsoleTraceListener());
ts.Listeners[i].TraceOutputOptions = TraceOptions.LogicalOperationStack;
ts.Switch = new SourceSwitch("MyAPP", "Verbose");
// Start the logical operation on the Main thread.
