Is there any component for C# which works like the log4j in Java?
It means I can use it to define the type of log information, such as Debug, Warning, Error, etc. And I also want to generate the log output into either window console, windows Form, or physical file.
Do anyone has any idea about it?

Thanks!

the object is called Trace (you provide TraceListeners)

default it will go to debug window ...

you can easily create your own tracelistener for file etc ..

I am quite sure you can find a File TraceListener on a google search.

Actually the file trace listener comes ready with the .net framework. It is called TextWriterTraceListener.

Justlogin, you should read about trace listeners and trace switches. Then you can write your code in such a way, that you can later configure it by changing the config file of your application.

You can start your exploration from here:
