Clear Method (VBScript)

Updated: September 2009

Clears all property settings of the Err object.


The object is always the Err object.

Use Clear to explicitly clear the Err object after an error has been handled. This can be useful, for example, when you use deferred error handling with On Error Resume Next.

Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) calls the Clear method automatically whenever the On Error Resume Next statement is executed.

The following example illustrates use of the Clear method.

On Error Resume Next
Err.Raise 6  ' Raise an overflow error.
MsgBox ("Error # " & CStr(Err.Number) & " " & Err.Description)
Err.Clear    ' Clear the error.
