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.
