Navneet Sharma's Article for adding events to event viewer
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.
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.
private bool Create_Event(string strEventData, EventLogEntryType logentryTy)
strEventData="The matter to be added in the source event to be written.";
if (!(EventLog.SourceExists("Navneet", ".")))
EventSourceCreationData evscd = new EventSourceCreationData("Navneet", "Navneet");
EventLog ev = new EventLog("Navneet", ".", "Navneet");
ev.WriteEntry(strEventData, logentryTy, 10001);
bMsgType = true;
catch (Exception ex)
bMsgType = false;
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?
This code has been implemented here for the first time in this post and if you want some modifications in it then mail me or suggest me the required improvements and I will do the required changes.
