Write Line to Logfile

Previous  Top  Next  

This action writes a single line to the log file.  The line can be formatted or not formatted.  If it is formatted the time of the write is added as well as an optional Status text.  This is a great way to get debug information about variables.








Line to write  ROMx116_dblisttable

The text you want to add to the log file. 

Add Time/Status

This formats the line.  See below for examples.

Status  ROMx116_dblisttable

Enter optional status.  This could be something like DEBUG, ERROR, WARNING, etc. 


The logfiles are written each time a project or part of project is executed.  The logfile writes are performed by two functions called WriteLogLine and WriteFormatLogLine.  The difference is in how they write the line sent to them.
