Navneet Sharma's Article for adding events to event viewer

Introduction

This article can be used to add/modify events to the event viewer using windows forms while developing from C# application in .Net 3.0 environments and I have used the assemblies and function to be added to the code for the smooth functionality.code has been inherited and implemented by me after a survey on the web and contains the items useful for creation of events using windows applications.

Background

This article can be used to add new events to the event viewer in windows events while developing with C# in windows application in .Net 3.0 environment.

Using the code

Copy this code to add events to the event viewer from windows forms while developing from C# application in .Net 3.0 environments and I have used the assemblies and function to be added to the code for the smooth functionality. Use the function named Create_Event() which can be called anywhere in your code(where you want) for e.g. Button1_Click event.

Copy the below code and paste it into your application.

//------------------------ ASSEMBLIES ---------------------------------------

using System.Diagnostics;

//------------------------ FUNCTION -----------------------------------------
private bool Create_Event(string strEventData, EventLogEntryType logentryTy)

{
bool bMsgType;
string strEventData;

try

{
strEventData="The matter to be added in the source event to be written.";

if (!(EventLog.SourceExists("Navneet", ".")))

{

EventSourceCreationData evscd = new EventSourceCreationData("Navneet", "Navneet");

EventLog.CreateEventSource(evscd);

}

EventLog ev = new EventLog("Navneet", ".", "Navneet");    // "." is used for locahost

ev.WriteEntry(strEventData, logentryTy, 10001);

ev.Close();

bMsgType = true;                //means the event has been added

}

catch (Exception ex)

{
bMsgType = false;              //means the event is not added

}

return bMsgType;
}

Language Used : C#

Platforms : Win XP Professional with SP 2, .Net 3.0

Points of Interest

Did you learn anything interesting/fun/annoying while writing the code? Did you do anything particularly clever or wild or zany?

History
