Features

- Capture output from System.Diagnostics.Debug and System.Diagnostics.Trace
- Works with multi-threaded application.
- Save log to file from Context Menu.
- Enable / Disable logging.
- Easy to use. Just drag and drop control to Form.

Multi-Threading Support

Debug.Write and Trace.Write could be call at anytime from any threads. It is necessary for DiagnosticsTextBox control ready for multi-threaded application. Since Windows Form control update can only called from main thread, a refresh timer is added in textbox control to print out contents in MessageBuffer from time to time. The refresh interval is so short which appear to be real time update to end user. On the other hand, TraceLogger is listened to all incoming message from Debug.Write and Trace.Write and stored all incoming messages to MessageBuffer.
