Use the Logging view

What is it?


The logging view displays events from the Dart runtime, application frameworks (like Flutter), and application-level logging events.

Standard logging events


By default, the logging view shows:

  • Garbage collection events from the Dart runtime
  • Flutter framework events, like frame creation events
  • stdout and stderr from applications
  • Custom logging events from applications
