Is there an element for setting up margins for a logging file in the app.config?
Is there also a way for putting the datestamp before the ".txt" extension because now it's looks like: InfoDebug_Logging_TestSimulator.txt.2011-05-20
I want it like this:
<appender name="RollingFileAppender1" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
    <file value="Logging\InfoDebug_Logging_TestSimulator.txt" />
    <appendToFile value="true" />
    <!--<rollingStyle value="Size" />
    <maxSizeRollBackups value="10" />
    <maximumFileSize value="10000" />
    <staticLogFileName value="true" />-->
    <!-- Alternatively, roll on date -->
    <rollingStyle value="Date" />
    <param name="DatePattern1" value=".yyyy-MM-dd-HH.\t\x\t" />
    <maxSizeRollBackups value="20" />
    <maximumFileSize value="15MB" />
    <filter type="log4net.Filter.LevelRangeFilter">
    <acceptOnMatch value="true" />
    <levelMin value="DEBUG" />
    <levelMax value="FATAL" />
    <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
    <conversionPattern value="%date{HH:mm:ss.fff} %-5level %-32logger %-30M %message%newline" />

thanks in advance

.\t\x\t" could be the problem.

Change <file value="Logging\InfoDebug_Logging_TestSimulator.txt" />
and try using .\tx\t or <datePattern value="yyyyMMdd_HH'.txt'"/>
