public sealed class TraceSection : System.Configuration.ConfigurationSection


The System.Web.Configuration.TraceSection class provides a way to programmatically access and modify the content of the configuration file trace section. The trace section configures the ASP.NET trace functionality and controls how trace results are gathered, stored, and displayed.

When tracing is enabled, each page request generates trace messages that can be appended to the page output or stored in an application trace log. You can use the ASP.NET trace viewer (Trace.axd) to view the contents of the trace log.


The trace element is allowed in the system.web section of the configuration hierarchy in the Machine.config file and the Web.config files. It is not allowed in configuration files of Web subdirectories.
