ErrObject ErrObject ErrObject ErrObject Class


The ErrObject module contains properties and procedures used to identify and handle run-time errors using the Err object.

public ref class ErrObject sealed
public sealed class ErrObject
type ErrObject = class
Public NotInheritable Class ErrObject


This example uses the properties of the Err object in constructing an error-message dialog box. Notice what happens when you use the Clear method first: When you then generate a Visual Basic error with the Raise method, Visual Basic's default values become the properties of the Err object.

Dim Msg As String  
' If an error occurs, construct an error message.  
On Error Resume Next   ' Defer error handling.  
Err.Raise(6)   ' Generate an "Overflow" error.  
' Check for error, then show message.  
If Err.Number <> 0 Then  
    Msg = "Error # " & Str(Err.Number) & " was generated by " _  
        & Err.Source & ControlChars.CrLf & Err.Description  
    MsgBox(Msg, MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Error")  
End If
