Line Property (WshRemoteError)

 

Identifies the line in a script that contains an error.

Object.Line

Object

WshRemoteError object.

The Line property returns an unsigned long integer.

Notice that some errors do not occur on a particular line. For example, consider the error Expected End If. In this case, there is no line (a line of code is missing). In such a case, the Line property returns zero (0).

Legacy Code Example

The following JScript code demonstrates how the WshRemoteError object exposes the line in which the error occurred.

Dim Controller, RemoteScript
Set Controller = WScript.CreateObject("WSHController")
Set RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("test.js", "remoteserver")
WScript.ConnectObject RemoteScript, "remote_"
RemoteScript.Execute

Do While RemoteScript.Status <> 2 
    WScript.Sleep 100
Loop

Sub remote_Error
    Dim theError
    Set theError = RemoteScript.Error
    WScript.Echo "Error - Line: " & theError.Line & ", Char: " & theError.Character & vbCrLf & "Description: " & theError.Description
    WScript.Quit -1
End Sub
var Controller = WScript.CreateObject("WSHController");
var RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("test.js", "remoteserver");
WScript.ConnectObject(RemoteScript, "remote_");
RemoteScript.Execute();

while (RemoteScript.Status != 2) {
    WScript.Sleep(100);
}

function remote_Error()
{
    var theError = RemoteScript.Error;
    WScript.Echo("Error - Line: " + theError.Line + ", Char: " + theError.Character + "\nDescription: " + theError.Description);
    WScript.Quit(-1);
}
