How to output line number?

This might seem like an overly simple question, but how can I output the line number to the logs pragmatically? All the methods I found via Google don't seem to work.

Hi Mike,

.NET 4.5 gives you the possibility to pass caller info to a function:

An easy way to implement the line number thing you want, is writing a function that just adds the line number in front of a string:

public string msgWithLine(string msg, [CallerLineNumber] int sourceLineNumber = 0)
return "Linenumber="+sourceLineNumber+" "+msg;

you can use this like:

Log(msgWithLine("logtest")); //logs "Linenumber=1 logtest"

you also need to add a referencelike this:

using System.Runtime.CompilerServices;

I wrote a quick example for you here:

Thanks so much! I'll give that a try.
