Hi There,
I dont think I have an answer to your question just now - but can I ask why you would prefer
to defer creating the log file?

Hi Everbody,
I’m looking for a way to defer the creation of the log file until the first entry is logged.
I want to use log4net for writing protocols for jobs that can be executed in my application.
With my current configuration the file is created during startup which makes no sense if the
job doesn’t run.  
My current configuration:
      <appender name="…" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
        <file value="....." />
        <appendToFile value="false" />
        <rollingStyle value="Date" />
        <datePattern value="yyyy_MM_dd.\tx\t" />
        <staticLogFileName value="false" />
        <threshold value="INFO" />
        <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
          <conversionPattern value="%date;%level;%m%n" />
One possibility seems to be to generate the appender programmatically, but then I lose a lot
of flexibility. Another one is writing my own appender (or subclassing an existing one). Is
there another way ?
Any help is appreciated,
