The DataError event enables you to handle exceptions thrown in code that is called by the control during data processing operations.

For more information about how to handle events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates a DataError event handler.

Private Sub DataRepeater1_DataError(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e _
 As Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.DataRepeaterDataErrorEventArgs) _
 Handles DataRepeater1.DataError
    Dim ErrorMsg As String
    ' Create an error string.
    ErrorMsg = "Invalid value entered for " & e.Control.Name & ". "
    ErrorMsg = ErrorMsg & e.Exception.Message
    ' Display the error to the user.
    ' Do not raise an exception.
    e.ThrowException = False
End Sub
