I'm using app.logevent in my VB applications to log different events, assignments, etc.  Everything works but I receive more information than I would like in the log file.  The following is an example of what is recorded:

Information Application E:\Log\ApplicationName.log: Thread ID: 848 ,Logged: This is a test

Everything prior to "This is a test" comes from the system.  Is there a way to eliminate this verbage?

As far as I can tell, you can't. The App.LogEvent method doesn't have very much flexibility in it.

You can use APIs to write to the NT event log if you want, but you get the same problem with extra verbiage.

If you want to write a log file that has only the information you want in it, then you will have to create that method yourself.
If you create a class wrapper for the functions you want, then it's easy to drop it into any application and use that as your logging.

Good luck.

Creating a class is an excellent idea.  I think I'll go that route.  Thanks for your help.
