The source of the error, the object that caused the event.


An Integer that identifies the error message. This identifier should be unique when combined with the source parameter, so the source and errorCode combination should be unique. However, the errorCode alone is not expected to be unique.


An arbitrary string that identifies the sub-module within a source. For example, the transform in a Pipeline task.


The text of the message.


The path to the Help file that contains detailed information.


Identifier of the topic in the Help file.


A textual representation of the GUID of the interface that caused the error.

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
