Examples

The following example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener() constructor. It sets the Writer property to console output, and then adds the TextWriterTraceListener to the TraceListenerCollection. It writes a message in two segments, and then closes the TextWriterTraceListener.

void main()
{
   #if defined(TRACE)
   // Create a text writer that writes to the console screen and add
   // it to the trace listeners.
   TextWriterTraceListener^ myWriter = gcnew TextWriterTraceListener;
   myWriter->Writer = System::Console::Out;
   Trace::Listeners->Add( myWriter );
   
   // Write the output to the console screen.
   myWriter->Write( "Write to the Console screen. " );
   myWriter->WriteLine( "Again, write to console screen." );
   
   // Flush and close the output.
   myWriter->Flush();
   myWriter->Close();
   #endif
}
public class Sample
{

public static void Main(string[] args) {
    /* Create a text writer that writes to the console screen and add
     * it to the trace listeners */
    TextWriterTraceListener myWriter = new TextWriterTraceListener();
    myWriter.Writer = System.Console.Out;
    Trace.Listeners.Add(myWriter);
 
    // Write the output to the console screen.
    myWriter.Write("Write to the Console screen. ");
    myWriter.WriteLine("Again, write to console screen.");
 
    // Flush and close the output.
    myWriter.Flush();
    myWriter.Close();
 }

}
Public Class Sample
    
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Create a text writer that writes to the console screen and add
        ' it to the trace listeners 
        Dim myWriter As New TextWriterTraceListener()
        myWriter.Writer = System.Console.Out
        Trace.Listeners.Add(myWriter)
        
        ' Write the output to the console screen.
        myWriter.Write("Write to the Console screen. ")
        myWriter.WriteLine("Again, write to console screen.")
        
        ' Flush and close the output.
        myWriter.Flush()
        myWriter.Close()
    End Sub

End Class

Remarks

This constructor uses the TextWriter stream as the recipient of the tracing or debugging output. Its Name property is initialized to an empty string ("", or String.Empty).

TextWriterTraceListener(Stream) TextWriterTraceListener(Stream) TextWriterTraceListener(Stream)

Initializes a new instance of the TextWriterTraceListener class, using the stream as the recipient of the debugging and tracing output.

public:
 TextWriterTraceListener(System::IO::Stream ^ stream);
public TextWriterTraceListener (System.IO.Stream stream);
new System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener : System.IO.Stream -> System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener

Parameters

stream
Stream Stream Stream Stream

A Stream that represents the stream the TextWriterTraceListener writes to.

Examples

The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener(Stream) constructor and adds it to the TraceListenerCollection. The example then writes two messages to this TextWriterTraceListener, and writes a message to all TraceListener objects in the TraceListenerCollection. Finally, it flushes and closes the TextWriterTraceListener.

Examples

The following code example creates a TextWriterTraceListener using the TextWriterTraceListener(TextWriter, String) constructor. The example creates a StreamWriter, then references the StreamWriter when it creates the TextWriterTraceListener, which it then adds to the TraceListenerCollection. The example writes two messages to this TextWriterTraceListener, then writes a message to all TraceListener objects in the TraceListenerCollection. Finally, it flushes and closes the TextWriterTraceListener.
