Hi everyone,

Can anyone tell me how I can read the Elmah log in C#? I want to display the errors in a custom way in MVC but I can't see which part of the API I should be using to e.g. "Get all Elmah errors last 24 hours"

Many thanks

Hi Phil,

You would simple use ErrorLog.GetErrors to get a page of errors at a time. The errors are always returned in the reverse chronological order so you would just keep paging (in a loop) until you find an error older than 24 hours or whatever criteria you have.

Unless C# is your only cup of tea, you may also want to think about a pure HTML + JavaScript version. Have a look at the elvue project to get started if that sounds interesting.
