I understand that the HandlingInstanceId is used as means to identify a log.
Let's take this scenario
An exception occurs and it's logged (only rolling File)
Now it would be helpful if a user could have some sort of ID to give to us EG HandlingInstanceID so that we could trace it.

If the HandlingInstanceID is not the correct thing to use ,what do you use?
Ideally to have either a messageBox to pop up or in web app somewhere have this ID written.
I cannot manage to get the HandlingInstanceID and pass to either the webForm or messageBox?How do you do it?

Can you help? What is the common approach you take ?
Any code examples or extensions I could download?

thanks a lot.
