The CodeSite Message Generator

The CodeSite Message Generator is a small program that demonstrates the variety of information that can be logged using CodeSite. The program consists of a single form that contains a page control. Each tab on the page control represents a specific classification of messages supported in CodeSite (eg. Basic Messages, Advanced Data Types, Custom Data, Method Tracing, etc.).

To operate the program, simply select a tab and then click the Send button at the bottom of the page. The source code that is executed on the button click is displayed on each page. Some pages contain additional controls that affect the messages generated by the program.
