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).

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);
}
