Using EurekaLog with SmartInspect

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page   

SmartInspect is an advanced high-performance logging tool for Delphi, .NET and Java applications. SmartInspect enables you to log application data, variables, objects, exceptions, database results and more. SmartInspect's rich logging library and viewer application can easily be used during development, on production systems or at customer sites.



SmartInspect to EurekaLog

If you are using SmartInspect in your application - it may be useful to get SmartInspect output as part of your EurekaLog's crash reports, so you will get a better understanding of execution flow of your application before crash. You can attach the log file from SmartInspect with the following code example:


Important Note: example below will add a new file with log output from SmartInspect. The new file will be added inside EurekaLog's bug report that is being send to developers. E.g. you have to set up sending to receive this file. The local EurekaLog's report do not store any additional files. If you wish to capture .elp file locally for testing purposes - see this example.


  SiAuto,          // for SmartInspect classes and routines
  EException,      // for TEurekaExceptionInfo
  ESysInfo,        // for GetFolderTemp
  EEvents;         // for RegisterEventZippedFilesRequest
// uncomment for alternative connection below
// var
//   GSmartInspectLogFileName: String;
// Initialize SmartInspect
// This is just an example
// You may replace/customize it
// Please, refer to SmartInspect documentation
procedure InitSmartInspect;

  // Note: You have to add 

  // either memory or file logging (or both)

  // to .Connections
  // SmartInspect will store log to internal memory buffer,
  // so no additional set up is necessary
  Si.Connections := 'mem()';
  // Alternatively, you may do something like:
  // GSmartInspectLogFileName := GetFolderTemp +
  //   ChangeFileExt(ExtractFileName(ParamStr(0)), '.sil');
  // Si.Connections : = 'file(filename=' + GSmartInspectLogFileName + ')';


  // Enable SmartInspect
  Si.Enabled := True;
// Will be called when EurekaLog wants to
// add additional files to packed bug report file (.elp)
procedure PackLogFile(const ACustom: Pointer;
  AExceptionInfo: TEurekaExceptionInfo;
  const ATempFolder: String;
  AAttachedFiles: TStrings;
  var ACallNextHandler: Boolean);
  LFileName: String;
  LStream: TStream;
  // Get a temporary filename
  LFileName := ATempFolder + 'CrashLog.sil';
  // Save internal log buffer to file
  LStream := TFileStream.Create(LFileName, fmCreate);
    Si.Dispatch('mem', 0, LStream);
  // Alternatively:
  // CopyFile(PChar(GSmartInspectLogFileName), PChar(LFileName), False);
  // Pack the file to EurekaLog's crash report
  // Initialize SmartInspect
  // Ask EurekaLog to add more files to .elp reports
  RegisterEventZippedFilesRequest(nil, PackLogFile);


When you receive crash report from EurekaLog - the SmartInspect log will be shown as file attach:

EurekaLog to SmartInspect

Alternatively, you may want to set up a reverse integration. E.g. you may want to have EurekaLog's crash information inside your SmartInspect log files. Use example below:



  SiAuto,          // for SmartInspect classes and routines

  EException,      // for TEurekaExceptionInfo

  EEvents;         // for RegisterEventExceptionNotify

// Tell EurekaLog to log crash info with SmartInspect
procedure LogExceptionToSmartInspect(const ACustom: Pointer;
  AExceptionInfo: TEurekaExceptionInfo;
  var AHandle: Boolean;
  var ACallNextHandler: Boolean);
  CallStack: TStringList;
  // Check if exception is of Exception class (usually: yes)
  if AExceptionInfo.ExceptionNative and
     TObject(AExceptionInfo.ExceptionObject).InheritsFrom(Exception) then
  // Log other "strange" exceptions
    SiMain.LogError(Format('[%s] %s',

  // Log exception's call stack
  CallStack := TStringList.Create;
    SiMain.LogStringList('Exception Call Stack', CallStack);

  // You may also log other properties of AExceptionInfo
  // Or you can use routines from ESysInfo to log process and environment info
  // Of you can use BuildBugReport function to compose bug report text

  // Tell EurekaLog to log crash info with SmartInspect
  RegisterEventExceptionNotify(nil, LogExceptionToSmartInspect);
