Reading and Writing Events to/from EventLog

In this post we will explore the following topics:

1. How to view Event Logs?
2. How to Register an Event Source?
3. How to Log Events?
4. How to Read Events?

The following is the sample code for the above topics:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace HelloWorld
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

            if (!EventLog.Exists("My Log"))
                EventLog.CreateEventSource("Sam Application", "My Log");

            EventLog mylog = new EventLog("My Log");
            mylog.Source = "Sam Application";
            mylog.WriteEntry("Could not connect", EventLogEntryType.Error, 1001, 1);

            Console.WriteLine("Event log written now trying to read from event log");
            foreach (EventLogEntry entry in mylog.Entries)
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to exit!!!");

We will see in detail all the three topics in the coming video tutorials which will be posted soon.
