The following example shows how to use the Message property to specify event messages. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the EventSource class.

[Event(1, Message = "Application Failure: {0}", Level = EventLevel.Error, Keywords = Keywords.Diagnostic)]
public void Failure(string message) { WriteEvent(1, message); }
<[Event](1, Message:="Application Failure: {0}", Level:=EventLevel.Error, Keywords:=Keywords.Diagnostic)> _
Public Sub Failure(ByVal message As String)
    WriteEvent(1, message)
End Sub
[Event(2, Message = "Starting up.", Keywords = Keywords.Perf, Level = EventLevel.Informational)]
public void Startup() { WriteEvent(2); }
<[Event](2, Message:="Starting up.", Keywords:=Keywords.Perf, Level:=EventLevel.Informational)> _
Public Sub Startup()
End Sub
[Event(3, Message = "loading page {1} activityID={0}", Opcode = EventOpcode.Start,
    Task = Tasks.Page, Keywords = Keywords.Page, Level = EventLevel.Informational)]
public void PageStart(int ID, string url) { if (IsEnabled()) WriteEvent(3, ID, url); }
<[Event](3, Message:="loading page {1} activityID={0}", Opcode:=EventOpcode.Start, Task:=Tasks.Page, Keywords:=Keywords.Page, Level:=EventLevel.Informational)> _
Public Sub PageStart(ByVal ID As Integer, ByVal url As String)
    If IsEnabled() Then
        WriteEvent(3, ID, url)
    End If
End Sub


You can use standard .NET Framework substitution operators (for example, {1}) in the string). They will be replaced with the string representation of the corresponding part of the event payload.

[Event(1, Message = "Application Failure: {0}", Level = EventLevel.Error, Keywords = Keywords.Diagnostic)]  
        public void Failure(string message) { WriteEvent(1, message); }
