mrpt::system::COutputLogger Class Reference

Detailed Description

Versatile class for consistent logging and management of output messages.

COutputLogger is a versatile class for logging messages either to the terminal window or to an external file. Class instances can take messages in std::string using the logStr class methods. The following macros are also provided for usage within a class that inherits from COutputLogger:

// Plain strings:
MRPT_LOG_DEBUG("This will be shown only if verbosity level is LVL_DEBUG.");
MRPT_LOG_ERROR("This message will be always shown.");
// printf-like versions:
MRPT_LOG_ERROR_FMT("Out of range value: %i.", int_param);
// stream-like versions:
MRPT_LOG_ERROR_STREAM("Out of range value: " << int_param << " more vars: "
<< other_var);
// Minimum period (in seconds) between messages:
MRPT_LOG_THROTTLE_DEBUG_STREAM(5.0, "Var=" << value << " foo=" << foo_var);
// Only once:
MRPT_LOG_ONCE_WARN("Notice: blah blah");

From outside of a class inheriting from COutputLogger the following MRPT_UNSCOPED_{START|END} macros are provided:

  • Logger instance keeps the messages in an internal container so that upon request it can dump them either to the console or to an external file altogether.
  • The message, when printed in the terminal window, is colored according to the logger's current verbosity/logging level (Logging level with which the underlying TMsg instance was instantiatedd). The available verbosity levels as well as their corresponding colors are listed below:
    • LVL_DEBUG => CONCOL_BLUE
    • LVL_INFO => CONCOL_NORMAL
    • LVL_WARN => CONCOL_GREEN
    • LVL_ERROR => CONCOL_RED
  • Logged messages are displayed in the screen if the current logger level is higher than m_min_verbosity_level (logger ignores those messages altogether). This can be used for filtering the output messages according to their importance (e.g. show only error messages by issuing setMinLoggingLevel(LVL_ERROR)).
    See also
    setLoggingLevel, setMinLoggingLevel
    Default logging level is LVL_INFO.

User may receive callbacks whenever a message is displayed to console by using logRegisterCallback(). If for some reason the callbacks are not needed any more, use logDeregisterCallback() to stop receiving calls. This mechanism is useful in case of showing the messages to a GUI, transmiting them to a remote machine, etc.

Note
By default every logged message is going to be dumped to the standard output as well (if VerbosityLevel > m_min_verbosity_level). Unset logging_enable_console_output class variable if that's not the desired behavior

◆ COutputLogger() [1/2]

COutputLogger::COutputLogger ( std::string_view  name)

Construct a COutputLogger instance with the given name as the instance name.

COutputLogger a_logger;
a_logger.setLoggerName("logger_name");
