public:
 static void WriteLine(System::Object ^ value);
[System.Diagnostics.Conditional("DEBUG")]
public static void WriteLine (object value);
static member WriteLine : obj -> unit
Public Shared Sub WriteLine (value As Object)

Parameters

value
Object Object Object Object

An object whose name is sent to the Listeners.

Examples

The following example creates a TraceSwitch named generalSwitch. This switch is set outside of the code sample.

If the switch is set to the TraceLevelError or higher, the example outputs the first error message to the Listeners. For information on adding a listener to the Listeners collection, see the TraceListenerCollection class.

Then, if the TraceLevel is set to Verbose, the example outputs the name of the object on the same line as the first message. A line terminator follows the second message.

   // Class-level declaration.
   // Create a TraceSwitch.
   static TraceSwitch^ generalSwitch = 
      gcnew TraceSwitch( "General","Entire Application" );

public:
   static void MyErrorMethod( Object^ myObject )
   {
      // Write the message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Error or higher.
      if ( generalSwitch->TraceError )
      {
         #if defined(DEBUG)
         Debug::Write( "Invalid object. " );
         #endif
      }
      // Write a second message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Verbose.
      if ( generalSwitch->TraceVerbose )
      {
         #if defined(DEBUG)
         Debug::WriteLine( myObject );
         #endif
      }
   }
// Class-level declaration.
 // Create a TraceSwitch.
 static TraceSwitch generalSwitch = new TraceSwitch("General", "Entire Application");
 
 static public void MyErrorMethod(Object myObject) {
    // Write the message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Error or higher.
    if(generalSwitch.TraceError)
       Debug.Write("Invalid object. ");
 
    // Write a second message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Verbose.
    if(generalSwitch.TraceVerbose)
       Debug.WriteLine(myObject);
 }

' Class-level declaration.
' Create a TraceSwitch.
Private Shared generalSwitch As New TraceSwitch("General", "Entire Application")


Public Shared Sub MyErrorMethod(myObject As Object)
    ' Write the message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Error or higher.
    If generalSwitch.TraceError Then
        Debug.Write("Invalid object. ")
    End If 
    ' Write a second message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Verbose.
    If generalSwitch.TraceVerbose Then
        Debug.WriteLine(myObject)
    End If
End Sub 'MyErrorMethod 

Remarks

By default, the output is written to an instance of DefaultTraceListener.

This method calls the WriteLine method of the trace listener.

WriteLine(String, Object[]) WriteLine(String, Object[]) WriteLine(String, Object[]) WriteLine(String, Object[])

Writes a formatted message followed by a line terminator to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection.

public:
 static void WriteLine(System::String ^ format, ... cli::array <System::Object ^> ^ args);
[System.Diagnostics.Conditional("DEBUG")]
public static void WriteLine (string format, params object[] args);
static member WriteLine : string * obj[] -> unit
Public Shared Sub WriteLine (format As String, ParamArray args As Object())

Parameters

format
String String String String

A composite format string that contains text intermixed with zero or more format items, which correspond to objects in the args array.

args
Object[]

An object array that contains zero or more objects to format.

Remarks

This method uses the of the .NET Framework to convert the value of an object to its text representation and embed that representation in a string.

The keyword in the syntax for this method implies that the object array can be a single value. The exception to this is the String object. Explicit overloads take precedence, so an arg value of a single string will default to the Debug.WriteLine(String, String) overload.

By default, the output is written to an instance of DefaultTraceListener.

This method calls the TraceListener.WriteLine method of the trace listener.

WriteLine(String, String) WriteLine(String, String) WriteLine(String, String) WriteLine(String, String)

static member WriteLine : string * string -> unit
Public Shared Sub WriteLine (message As String, category As String)

Parameters
