How to get class name?

How to get the class-name with caller info attributes.

I strongly say a no to log the class name using reflection.

Was able to get the method name using the [CallerMemberName] like below:

        private void Log(string logMessage, [CallerMemberName]string callerName = null)
        {
            if (logger.IsDebugEnabled)
            {
                logger.DebugFormat("Executing Method = {1};{0}", logMessage, callerName);
            }
        }

How to log the class name here using Caller Info Attributes ?

You can't there is no attribute available that does that. However because Log is private no external classes could call the function so you already know which class called it.

public SomeClass
{
 
    //(snip)
 
    private void Log(string logMessage, [CallerMemberName]string callerName = null)
    {
 
        if (logger.IsDebugEnabled)
        {
            string className = typeof(SomeClass).Name;
 
            logger.DebugFormat("Executing Method = {1};{2}.{0}", logMessage, callerName, className);
        }
    }
}
