|Gibraltar.Agent.Metrics Namespace > EventMetricDefinition Class > WriteSample Method : WriteSample(Object) Method|
|System.ArgumentException||This event metric definition is not bound to sample automatically from a user data object. CreateSample() and SetValue() must be used to specify the data values directly.|
The provided user data object is not assignable to this event metric's bound type and can not be sampled automatically for this metric definition.
This overload may only be used if this metric definition was created by EventMetric and EventMetricValue attributes on a particular Type (class, struct, or interface), and only for userDataObjects of a type assignable to that bound type for this definition.
The metric instance name will be obtained from the member which was marked with the EventMetricInstanceName attribute. If none is bound, the default instance will be used (a null instance name). The determined metric instance will be created if it does not already exist. See the overloads with an instanceName parameter to specify a particular metric instance name.
