_EventLog__Report obtuse Description.

Recommended Posts

Tim Net

If I use the helpfile's example, I get an obtuse event log with much fluff and little 'data'. If I use EVENTCREATE.EXE, a much more compact and clean Description.

Here's what I see from the example:

Here's the output from Eventcreate:

c:\>EVENTCREATE /T ERROR /ID 999 /L APPLICATION  /SO WinWord /D "new source Winword in application log"

Here's the good eventlog entry that I'd like AutoIt to be able to recreate:

So, how does one get a slim description using _EventLog__Report?

TIA.

You only get that result because you passed an invalid EVENTID for the "Application" source. Try this code:

#include <EventLog.au3>

Global $hEventLog, $aData[1]=[0]
Global $hEventLog = _EventLog__RegisterSource("", "Application Error")
_EventLog__Report($hEventLog, 1, "None", 1000, "", "AutoIt3 generated event", $aData)
_EventLog__Close ($hEventLog)

...and you get:

Faulting application AutoIt3 generated event, version %2, faulting module %3, version %4, fault address 0x%5.

EVENTID = 1000 is valid for "Application Error" source, and the %2 thru %5 are where relevant information to that EVENTID would normally be passed.

Just out of interest how do you pass the data %2 thru %5 PsaltyDS, I've always used the WSH method but this looks interesting

I just opened up Eventlog.au3 and looked at the DLL call inside the _EventLog__Report() function. Google it in MSDN and you get all the gory details.
