There are three types or errors:

  • SCHEMA_VALIDATION  Data validation failed as a result of an XML Schema–defined constraint.
  • SYSTEM_GENERATED  Data validation failed as a result of constraints defined in the form definition (.xsf) file or as a result of scripting code calling the ReportError method of the DataDOMEvent object.
  • USER_SPECIFIED  Data validation failed as a result of a custom scripting error using the Add method of the Errors collection.


In the following example, the Type property of the Error object is used to display the type of an error in a message box:

var objError;

objError = XDocument.Errors(0);
XDocument.UI.Alert("Error name: " + objError.Type);
