Namespace: System.Data.SqlClient
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

property bool FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);

/** @property */
public boolean get_FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors ()

/** @property */
public void set_FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors (boolean value)

public function get FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors () : boolean

public function set FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors property has been set; otherwise false.

When you set FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors to true, errors that were previously treated as exceptions are now handled as InfoMessage events. All events fire immediately and are handled by the event handler. If is FireInfoMessageEventOnUserErrors is set to false, then InfoMessage events are handled at the end of the procedure.


An error with a severity level of 17 or above that causes the server to stop processing the command needs to be handled as an exception. In this case, an exception is thrown regardless of how the error is handled in the InfoMessage event.
