ErrObject.Number Property

Returns or sets a numeric value specifying an error. Read/write.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

public int Number { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
Returns or sets a numeric value specifying an error. Read/write.

When returning a user-defined error from an object, set Err.Number by adding the number you selected as an error code to the VbObjectError constant. For example, you use the following code to return the number 1051 as an error code:


Err.Raise(Number:=vbObjectError + 1051)


This example illustrates a typical use of the Number property in an error-handling routine.


' Typical use of Number property.
  Sub test()
    On Error GoTo out

    Dim x, y As Integer
    x = 1 / y   ' Create division by zero error.
    Exit Sub
out:
    Dim Msg = Err.Number & " " & Err.Description

    ' Check for division by zero error.
    If Err.Number = 11 Then
      y = y + 1
    End If
    Resume Next
  End Sub
