PSClientError Class

Contains information about a SOAP exception for a PSI method.


Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library (in Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library.dll)

public class PSClientError : ISerializable

To get a list of all errors that occur if you get an exception when you call a PSI method, pass the SoapException object to the Microsoft.Office.Project.Server.Library.PSClientError class constructor. You can then use GetAllErrors to store the error information in a PSErrorInfo array and enumerate the errors, as in the following example.


The PSErrorInfo object may not include all of the information you need. For example, if you use Resource.CheckOutResources where some of the resources are already checked out, PSErrorInfo shows the reason for failure for each resource that cannot be checked out, but does not include the resource name or GUID. For a way to get more information, see CheckOutResources.
