Definition

Writes information about the trace to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection.

Overloads

Write(Object) Write(Object) Write(Object) Write(Object)

Writes the value of the object's ToString() method to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection.

Write(String) Write(String) Write(String) Write(String)

Writes a message to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection.

Write(Object, String) Write(Object, String) Write(Object, String) Write(Object, String)

Write(String, String) Write(String, String) Write(String, String) Write(String, String)

Writes a category name and a message to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection.

Write(Object) Write(Object) Write(Object) Write(Object)

Writes the value of the object's ToString() method to the trace listeners in the Listeners collection.

public:
 static void Write(System::Object ^ value);
[System.Diagnostics.Conditional("TRACE")]
public static void Write (object value);
static member Write : obj -> unit
Public Shared Sub Write (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 the code sample.

If the switch is set to the TraceLevelError or higher, the example outputs the first name of the value parameter 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 a message on the same line as the first message. The second message is followed by a line terminator.

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

public:
   static void MyErrorMethod( Object^ myObject )
   {
      #if defined(TRACE)
      // Write the message if the TraceSwitch level 
      // is set to Error or higher.
      if ( generalSwitch->TraceError )
      {
         Trace::Write( myObject );
      }
      
      // Write a second message if the TraceSwitch level
      // is set to Verbose.
      if ( generalSwitch->TraceVerbose )
      {
          Trace::WriteLine( " is not a valid value for this method." );
      }
      #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)
       Trace.Write(myObject);
 
    // Write a second message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Verbose.
    if(generalSwitch.TraceVerbose)
       Trace.WriteLine(" is not a valid value for this method.");
 }

' 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
        Trace.Write(myObject)
    End If 
    ' Write a second message if the TraceSwitch level is set to Verbose.
    If generalSwitch.TraceVerbose Then
        Trace.WriteLine(" is not a valid value for this method.")
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

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

This method calls the Write method of the trace listener.

Note

ASP.NET supplies tracing functionality tailored for Web pages. To write trace messages in ASP.NET pages, use the Page.Trace property.

By default, in code associated with an ASP.NET Web page, the statement Trace.Write("...") is a call to the Write method of the Page.Trace property. To use the System.Diagnostics.Trace class in Web pages, you must include the namespace, for example, System.Diagnostics.Trace.Write("...").
