Hi all,

please advice a good logging component with source code to write application log entries to a the log file, with the following features.

1) Turn on or off the logging
2) Set the log message level like critical,major , minor etc

A custom log file or the NT event log?

It depends on what you want. Personally I have never used any of those. The only logging I have used is the NT event log, which is quite useful in that it can be downloaded across networks. Have a read through of the components and see which one fits your needs, then try it.
