|A useful feature to add to VB applications is the ability to write to the
NT Event Log as a means of providing the user with information or warning of errors. The
App object in both VB5/6, now provides event logging methods.
'-- Start Event Logging
Call App.StartLogging("", vbLogToNT)
'-- Log Events to NT
Call App.LogEvent("Info", vbLogEventTypeInformation)
Call App.LogEvent("Error", vbLogEventTypeError)
Call App.LogEvent("Warning", vbLogEventTypeWarning)
A few points to note, these functions will only work in a compiled executable as the
code is simply ignore in design mode, therefore you cannot use the code during a debug
session. Apart from these limitations, these methods form a quick and simple method for
If running on Windows 95, change the logmode argument in the 'App.StartLogging'
function from 'vbLogToNT' to 'vbAutoLog'.
