It sounds like what you want is something like https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/logging/log4j/branches/BRANCH_2_0_EXPERIMENTAL/rgoers/log4j2-core/src/main/java/org/apache/logging/log4j/core/appender/rewrite/ (but for Logback of course) that will let you modify the event.

The LogHelper may throw something on the MDC or do some other preprocessing. My LogHelper also adds methods that apply String.format() on the parameters a la printf.

The depth parameter allows you to eventually see the "real" code but really we want the logHelper to disappear from the display. That is display only one element - the one we want.
> I've written a class similar to the ch.qos.logback.classic.pattern.CallerDataConverter (actually I just grabbed the source and modified) so that instead of a depth I pass the FQCN of the LogHelper class and the convert method skips all elements until it finds one that doesn't match this, and it displays that.
> This works very well, but it would be nice if logback offered a better way to extend its framework to support this kind of conversion. The only reason I had to resort to reuse by copying instead of reuse by inheritance is that CallerDataConverter has some private methods that I needed to call from convert(). If these were protected, it would provide much greater flexibility.
