Category Property

The Categoryproperty gets the category of the event.

[VBScript] Event.Category



Return Value



The category of an event is a Windows 2000 text string that describes the event, such as Server or Kernel.

The Categoryproperty is read-only when used with an event provided to the script by MOM. The property is read/write when used with a new event created with the ScriptContext.CreateEventmethod.


The following example shows how to create a new event and set the Categoryproperty to Server.

Function MakeEvent
	Dim objEvent

	Set objEvent = ScriptContext.CreateEvent()
	objEvent.Category = "Server"

	Set MakeEvent = objEvent
End Function
