Return Value


The Errors collection is associated with a form's underlying XML document so that when an error occurs, it occurs within the XML document. After you set a reference to the Errors collection, you can access all of its properties and methods for managing the errors within an InfoPath form.

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 Errors property of the XDocument object is used to return the count of the number or errors and then display that value in a message box:

var intErrors;

intErrors = XDocument.errors.Count;
XDocument.UI.Alert("Total number of errors: " + intErrors);
