Remarks

The instances of this class are created from EventLogQuery objects, which specify a query for the event subscription. When an event is logged that matches the criteria expressed in the query, then the EventRecordWritten event is raised.

Constructors

EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery)

Initializes a new instance of the EventLogWatcher class by specifying an event query.

EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark)

Initializes a new instance of the EventLogWatcher class by specifying an event query and a bookmark that is used as starting position for the query.

EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark, Boolean) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark, Boolean) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark, Boolean) EventLogWatcher(EventLogQuery, EventBookmark, Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the EventLogWatcher class by specifying an event query, a bookmark that is used as starting position for the query, and a Boolean value that determines whether to read the events that already exist in the event log.

EventLogWatcher(String) EventLogWatcher(String) EventLogWatcher(String) EventLogWatcher(String)

Initializes a new instance of the EventLogWatcher class by specifying the name or path to an event log.
