Examples

The following example creates a record sequence, appends record to it, and finally reads the records.


public class MyLog
{
    string logName = "test.log";
    FileRecordSequence sequence = null;
    bool delete = true;

    public MyLog()
    {
    // Create a FileRecordSequence.
        sequence = new FileRecordSequence(logName, FileAccess.ReadWrite);
    }

// Append records to the record sequence.
    public void AppendRecords()
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Appending Log Records...");
        SequenceNumber previous = SequenceNumber.Invalid;

        previous = sequence.Append(CreateData("Hello World!"), SequenceNumber.Invalid, SequenceNumber.Invalid, RecordAppendOptions.ForceFlush);
        previous = sequence.Append(CreateData("This is my first Logging App"), SequenceNumber.Invalid, SequenceNumber.Invalid, RecordAppendOptions.ForceFlush);
        previous = sequence.Append(CreateData("Using FileRecordSequence..."), SequenceNumber.Invalid, SequenceNumber.Invalid, RecordAppendOptions.ForceFlush);

        Console.WriteLine("Done...");
    }
     
// Read the records added to the log. 
    public void ReadRecords()
    {
        Encoding enc = Encoding.Unicode;

        Console.WriteLine();

        Console.WriteLine("Reading Log Records...");
        try
        {
            foreach (LogRecord record in this.sequence.ReadLogRecords(this.sequence.BaseSequenceNumber, LogRecordEnumeratorType.Next))

Remarks

The FileRecordSequence is a record sequence based on a single log file in the file system. It is a simple implementation of the IRecordSequence interface, on top of a simple file-based log.

To manipulate a file-based log, the account that your application is running in must have sufficient privileges, as dictated by the file system security at the time the FileRecordSequence is constructed. In addition, a demand for FullTrust is made at construction time. The permission verification results are cached thereafter in keeping with the Windows security model. You should ensure that you do not accidentally expose the contents of the record sequence to an unauthorized user.

Constructors

FileRecordSequence(String)

Initializes a new instance of the FileRecordSequence class with a specified file.

FileRecordSequence(String, FileAccess)

Initializes a new instance of the FileRecordSequence class with a specified file and an access mode.

FileRecordSequence(String, FileAccess, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the FileRecordSequence class with a specified file, an access mode, and a file size.

Properties

BaseSequenceNumber

Gets the sequence number of the first valid record in the current FileRecordSequence.

LastSequenceNumber

Gets the sequence number which is greater than the last record appended.

MaximumRecordLength

Gets the size of the largest record that can be appended to or read from this sequence, in bytes.

ReservedBytes

Gets the total number of bytes that have been reserved.

RestartSequenceNumber

Gets the sequence number of the most recently written restart area.

RetryAppend

Gets or sets a value indicating whether or not appends are automatically retried if the log is full.
