The following is to setup log4net in a console application. You will need to get the log4net Nuget package or reference a downloaded log4net dll.

//AssemblyInfo.cs ... [assembly: log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(Watch = true)] //App.Config <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration> <configSections> <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler, log4net"/> </configSections> <log4net> <root> <!-- add other appenders here and the log messages will be sent to every listed appender --> <appender-ref ref="LogFileAppender" /> <level value="ERROR"/> </root> <!-- The DebugFileAppender writes all messages to a log file--> <appender name="LogFileAppender" type="log4net.Appender.FileAppender"> <file value="C:\\Projects\\Logs\\iFormBuilder.log" /> <appendToFile value="true" /> <lockingModel type="log4net.Appender.FileAppender+MinimalLock" /> <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout"> <conversionPattern value="%d [%t] %-5p %c %m%n" /> </layout> </appender> </log4net> .... //Program.cs - or whatever files you have var log4Net = log4net.LogManager.GetLogger(typeof(Program)); log4Net.Debug("Start logging.");
