ErrObject Class

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

System.Object
  Microsoft.VisualBasic.ErrObject

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

public sealed class ErrObject

The ErrObject type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription

  NameDescription
Public methodClearClears all property settings of the Err object.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetExceptionReturns the exception representing the error that occurred.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRaiseGenerates a run-time error; can be used instead of the Error statement.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

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.Clear
Err.Raise(6)   ' Generate an "Overflow" error.
' Check for error, then show message.
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    Msg = "Error # " & Str(Err.Number) & vbCrLf & Err.Description
End If
