- Add a reference to Microsoft.Office.Server (located in C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions14ISAPI on your SharePoint server)
- Add a using statement at the top of your code like so:
- Add the following line wherever you want the message to appear in the ULS
PortalLog.LogString(<whatever you want to put in the ULS>)
