Create application log

This section explains how you can log events in the application log in your application.

The function modules described here (beginning with APPL_LOG_*) exist since Release 3.0. New, more flexible and powerful function modules (beginning with BAL_*) exist since Release 4.6.

The three most important function modules are:

  • BAL_LOG_CREATE
    Open a log
  • BAL_LOG_MSG_ADD
    Put a message in the log
  • BAL_DSP_LOG_DISPLAY
    Display log

Function module documentation exists for these and all other function modules. There is also a complete technical documentation.

You can still use the old function modules (before Release 4.6). They now call the new function modules from Release 4.6.
