The standard System.Diagnostics.Debug functionality is very robust as well.  You may not even need to include log4net.

if you want to create your own logger refer this

else go fro Log4net as suggested by emoreau or use Logging and Instrumentation Application Block ( provided by microsoft)

for log4net

thx guys for the examples.
log4net seems a  bit complex in my case, I must write my own one in this projects  so any other more "easier/smaller" examples?

Using System.Diagnostics.Debug you can use the build in trace functionality.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zd83saa2(VS.80).aspx


The trace listener can be hard coded or configured in a config file.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.diagnostics.tracelistener.aspx

If you are building your own class because you want to that's one thing.   But the built in version is the most simple with Log4net being only very slightly more complicated.   And both will be more simple than writing your own error handling around writing to files or whatever alternative output method you decide to use.
