The code below writes into event log. How to change Type from Information to Error.

public static void Main(string[] args) {

    // Create a trace listener for the event log.
    EventLogTraceListener myTraceListener = new EventLogTraceListener("myEventLogSource");

    // Add the event log trace listener to the collection.
    Trace.Listeners.Add(myTraceListener);

    // Write output to the event log.
    Trace.WriteLine("Test output");
 }

EventLog log;
log = new EventLog();
            
log.Source = "ErrorLog_SOMELOCATION";
log.WriteEntry(err.Message, EventLogEntryType.Error);

You can create your own trace listener like this one:

public class MyLogListener : TraceListener
{
    EventLog eventLog;
    EventLogEntryType entryType;
   
    public MyLogListener(string logName, EventLogEntryType entryType)
      {
        eventLog = new EventLog(logName);
        this.entryType = entryType;
      }
    public override void Write(string message)
    {
        eventLog.WriteEntry(message, entryType);
    }
    public override void WriteLine(string message)
    {
        eventLog.WriteEntry(message, entryType);
    }
}

And then use it as you use your EventLogTraceListener:

MyLogListener listener = new MyLogListener("ExpertsExchange", EventLogEntryType.Warning);
System.Diagnostics.Trace.Listeners.Clear();
System.Diagnostics.Trace.Listeners.Add(listener);
System.Diagnostics.Trace.Write("Testing MyLogListener");
