Adding Events to the NT Event Log

Windows applications typically write to the NT event log to provide the user with useful information. In VB5/6, the App object now provides methods to make writing to the event log in Windows NT a snap:

'-- 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)

Be aware though, these functions will only work in the compiled EXE. They will be ignored in design mode. Check out the Microsoft knowledge base article Q161306 for more information.
