Hi All

I would like to roll my own logger listener ( To call a web service to log into a central sql database ) and be able to extend the configuration tool that changes app.config with my own cutom dialogs.

Any examples would be really usefull.

Many thanks

Hi Midas, the details for creating a custom trace listener is included in the documentation.  I don't have a sample that calls a web service, I only have a sample for a custom database trace listener.  If you want a copy, you can send an email to

On your second concern, there's actually no guidance for that but I do know you can't simply extend entlib, you would need to modify the source code and add the necessary classes.
