Subject Re: Dynamically add Souce and Category to EventLog
Date Tue, 11 Oct 2005 18:47:19 GMT
The idea is to use the same Logger for multiple applications (Windows
Services, Web Services etc). For example System event log has sources like
DCOM, SCM, IIS etc. I would give extending EventLogAppender a try though.
 Thanks.
