Subject Re: Dynamically add Souce and Category to EventLog
Date Tue, 11 Oct 2005 18:22:47 GMT
There's this:

 /// <summary>
 /// Property used to set the Application name.  This appears in the
 /// event logs when logging.
 /// </summary>
 /// <value>
 /// The string used to distinguish events from different sources.
 /// </value>
 /// <remarks>
 /// Sets the event log source property.
 /// </remarks>
 public string ApplicationName
 {
  get { return m_applicationName; }
  set { m_applicationName = value; }
 }

Do you want the event source to be different for each log message? I
don't think that's a correct usage for the event source. If you need to
do that, I would extend EventLogAppender and override its Append
method. I would check for an ApplicationName as a property of the
loggingEvent or use the default value set in the config file if there
isn't one:

 // untested...
 string applicationName = 
  loggingEvent.LookupProperty("ApplicationName") as string;
 if (applicationName == null || applicationName.Length == 0)
 {
  // use the default value
  applicationName = ApplicationName;
 }

 // snip

 EventLog.WriteEntry(applicationName, eventTxt, entryType, eventID);
