Property Value


A valid type reference or an empty string (""). The default is an empty string.



The following code example shows how to use the Type property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the HealthMonitoringSection class.

eventMappingSetting.Type = 
    "System.Web.Management.WebErrorEvent, System.Web";
eventMappingSetting.Type = _
    "System.Web.Management.WebErrorEvent, System.Web"


Use this property to specify the type of the event. The specified type can be the actual class type or a parent type of the event class. If it is an empty string (""), no event is mapped, and the EventMappingSettings object acts as a placeholder.

The type reference is formed as follows (items in brackets are not required): Namespace.Typename, Assemblyname[,] [Version=x,] [Culture=y,] [PublicKeyToken=z]. For example "ExampleNameSpace.ExampleType, Example.Assembly, Version=%ASSEMBLY_VERSION%, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=%MICROSOFT_PUBLICKEY%"
