Is it possible to get the logging block to read its configuration from memory, not the app.config

Many thanks

Enterprise Library 5 has added the ability to easily configure the blocks (including Logging) via a Fluent interface.  See Using the Fluent Configuration API for an example.

Prior to Version 5 programmatic configuration was possible but in a much less elegant and integrated manner.  David Hayden and Alois Kraus both wrote excellent articles describing the older approach.
