Logging settings for PhotoView

Sometimes you need to know exactly and explicitly what PhotoView is doing. PhotoView has logging options which create a log file which you can examine, or send to us, to help understand what is happening.

(If you have an older version of PhotoView you need to follow these instructions.)

Newer versions of PhotoView have a logging settings dialog:

PhotoView logging

The directory is where the log file will be placed. The file will have a name something like 2015-08-10-PhotoViewLog.Txt, for example.

The Open Log Dir button will open the directory so you can find the log file and send it to us if requested.

The Logging On checkbox is self explanatory. Having logging enabled may slow down Photoview slightly, but I doubt that you'll notice much difference.

When Loud Logging is enabled errors will be shown not only in the log file, but also with a dialog box. If you are going to be logging I'd recommend always having loud logging enabled, else you may never see an error which is actually happening.

For older versions: There are three simple settings you can customise. You need to edit LTS.INI and go to the PhotoView section:


Logging=0 will switch off, Logging=1 will enable it.

LogMode=0 is the silent mode. Logging messages will be written, but no dialogs will show up. LogMode=1 will result in dialogs popping up with messages if there are bad file formats or other errors.

LogDir=... is simply the place where the log files are kept.
