HttpApplication.Error Event

Occurs when an unhandled exception is thrown.

[Visual Basic]
Public Event Error As EventHandler
public event EventHandler Error;
public: __event EventHandler* Error;

[JScript] In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.

Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type EventArgs.


The exception that raises the Error event can be accessed by a call to GetLastError method. If your application generates custom error output, suppress the default error message generated by ASP.NET by a call to the ClearError method.


Platforms: Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family
