Logging Application Block to event viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use this simple code to log exception in event viwer - but it's not written in Event Viewer.
    Anuy idea where I am going wrong


                        LogEntry _logentry = new LogEntry();
                        _logentry.Priority = 2;
                        _logentry.EventId = 4000;
                        _logentry.Severity = TraceEventType.Information;
                        _logentry.Title = "My Title";
                        _logentry.Message = "Message from Log Entry Object";
                        Logger.Write("This is being written to text file", "DebugCategory", 2, 2000, TraceEventType.Information, "My method");   







    add source="Enterprise Library Logging" formatter="Text Formatter" log="Test_2"



    machineName="XXX" listenerDataType="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.Configuration.FormattedEventLogTraceListenerData, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"



    traceOutputOptions="None" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.TraceListeners.FormattedEventLogTraceListener, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"



    name="Formatted EventLog TraceListener" />




    is the Enterprise Library Config file.

    When I debugg i can see the _logentry object has all the values from but its not written in eventviwer
