Subject log4NET from a class library (dll)
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2006 15:42:22 GMT


I want to log messages from a class library(dll).This dll is called by a 
third party application on which I have no control. In other words, I cannot 
make the third party application read a app.config file.

A dll by its very nature does not allow loading of app.config file. I am 
also not able to find an AssemblyInfo.cs file to make changes to point to 
the config file.

I can hard code log4net as follows

FileAppender appender =  new log4net.Appender.FileAppender(
				new log4net.Layout.PatternLayout("%d [%t]%-5p %c;- %m%n"),logFile);
// using a FileAppender with a PatternLayout

But this means that the log file is hardcoded and cannot be configured. How 
can I make the dll read the config file.
