UI Element List

Element Name Description


Select a mode for the error pages: On, Off, or Remote Only.

Absolute URL

Specifies the default URL address to which to direct a browser, if an error occurs. If this attribute is not specified, you receive a generic error message instead.

The URL can be absolute or relative. An example of an absolute URL is www.contoso.com/ErrorPage.htm. A relative URL, such as /ErrorPage.htm, is relative to the Web.config file that specified the URL for this attribute, not to the Web page in which the error occurred. A URL starting with a tilde (~), such as ~/ErrorPage.htm, indicates that the specified URL is relative to the root path of the application.
