NewEventLogCommand NewEventLogCommand NewEventLogCommand Class

Definition

This cmdlet creates the new event log .This cmdlet can also be used to configure a new source for writing entries to an event log on the local computer or a remote computer. You can create an event source for an existing event log or a new event log. When you create a new source for a new event log, the system registers the source for that log, but the log is not created until the first entry is written to it. The operating system stores event logs as files. The associated file is stored in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config directory on the specified computer. The file name is set by appending the first 8 characters of the Log property with the ".evt" file name extension. You can register the event source with localized resource file(s) for your event category and message strings. Your application can write event log entries using resource identifiers, rather than specifying the actual string. You can register a separate file for event categories, messages and parameter insertion strings, or you can register the same resource file for all three types of strings.

Methods

BeginProcessing() BeginProcessing() BeginProcessing()

BeginProcessing method.

CurrentProviderLocation(String) CurrentProviderLocation(String) CurrentProviderLocation(String) Inherited from PSCmdlet
EndProcessing() EndProcessing() EndProcessing()

When overridden in the derived class, performs clean-up after the command execution. Default implementation in the base class just returns.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
GetResolvedProviderPathFromPSPath(String, ProviderInfo) GetResolvedProviderPathFromPSPath(String, ProviderInfo) GetResolvedProviderPathFromPSPath(String, ProviderInfo) Inherited from PSCmdlet
GetResourceString(String, String) GetResourceString(String, String) GetResourceString(String, String)

Gets the resource string corresponding to baseName and resourceId from the current assembly. You should override this if you require a different behavior.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
GetUnresolvedProviderPathFromPSPath(String) GetUnresolvedProviderPathFromPSPath(String) GetUnresolvedProviderPathFromPSPath(String) Inherited from PSCmdlet
GetVariableValue(String) GetVariableValue(String) GetVariableValue(String) Inherited from PSCmdlet
GetVariableValue(String, Object) GetVariableValue(String, Object) GetVariableValue(String, Object) Inherited from PSCmdlet
Invoke() Invoke() Invoke()

Invoke this cmdlet object returning a collection of results.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
Invoke<T>() Invoke<T>() Invoke<T>()

Returns a strongly-typed enumerator for the results of this cmdlet.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
ProcessRecord() ProcessRecord() ProcessRecord()

When overridden in the derived class, performs execution of the command.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
ShouldContinue(String, String) ShouldContinue(String, String) ShouldContinue(String, String)

Confirm an operation or grouping of operations with the user. This differs from ShouldProcess in that it is not affected by preference settings or command-line parameters, it always does the query. This variant only offers Yes/No, not YesToAll/NoToAll.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
ShouldContinue(String, String, Boolean, Boolean) ShouldContinue(String, String, Boolean, Boolean) ShouldContinue(String, String, Boolean, Boolean)

Confirm an operation or grouping of operations with the user. This differs from ShouldProcess in that it is not affected by preference settings or command-line parameters, it always does the query. This variant offers Yes, No, YesToAll and NoToAll.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
ShouldContinue(String, String, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean) ShouldContinue(String, String, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean) ShouldContinue(String, String, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean)

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
ShouldProcess(String) ShouldProcess(String) ShouldProcess(String)

Confirm the operation with the user. Cmdlets which make changes (e.g. delete files, stop services etc.) should call ShouldProcess to give the user the opportunity to confirm that the operation should actually be performed.

(Inherited from Cmdlet)
ShouldProcess(String, String) ShouldProcess(String, String) ShouldProcess(String, String)
