Security Level 2: Can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.


In the following example, the ConditionName property of the Error object is used to display the name of a custom error in a message box:

var objError;

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