CharPosition (ParserErrorEventArgs)

Silverlight

Gets or sets the character position within the line on which the parser error occurred.

value = eventargs.CharPosition

Type: integer

The character position the parser error occurred on.

This property is read/write but should be considered read-only because there is no reason to change the reported information. There is no default.

Because you cannot raise your own errors in the Silverlight JavaScript model, the settable aspect of this property does not have a practical usage. Typically, you use this property only to get its value.

The following JavaScript example shows the portion of an event handler that displays error information that is specific to parser errors.

// errorArgs is an instance of ParserErrorEventArgs
    if(errorArgs.ErrorType == "ParserError")
    {
      var parserErrorMsg = "Silverlight Parser Error  \n\n";
               
      // Basic error event information.
      parserErrorMsg += "Error Type:    " + errorArgs.errorType     + "\n";
      parserErrorMsg += "Error Message: " + errorArgs.errorMessage  + "\n";
      parserErrorMsg += "Error Code:    " + errorArgs.errorCode  + "\n";
            
      //Parser-specific error event information.
      parserErrorMsg += "XamlFile:      " + errorArgs.xamlFile      + "\n";
      parserErrorMsg += "XmlElement:    " + errorArgs.xmlElement    + "\n";
      parserErrorMsg += "XmlAttribute:  " + errorArgs.xmlAttribute  + "\n";
      parserErrorMsg += "Line:          " + errorArgs.lineNumber    + "\n";
      parserErrorMsg += "Position:      " + errorArgs.charPosition  + "\n";
            
      // Display the error message.
      alert(parserErrorMsg);
    }
