Hi Motaz,

 if you use exceptions for your IO control then the exceptions you get are of type EInOutError :

type
 EInOutError = class(Exception)
   ErrorCode: Integer;
 end;

So the ErrorCode give the same result as IOResult in early pascal days (or still in delphi for compatibility?)

try
 ...
except
 on E: Exception do showMessage('ErrorCode: ', E.ErrorCode);
end;

Zif.

Thanks ZifNab, you are a porfull Delphi programmer. I hope I become like you. I search for this error number for a long time. Thanks again for your help. But there is some bugs in your code but it isn't important, that is the correction :

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
     f:file;
begin
  try
    AssignFile(f,'NonExist.err');
    Reset(f);
    closefile(f);
  except
  on E: EinoutError do
    showMessage('ErrorCode: '+IntToStr(E.ErrorCode));
  end; (*** end try ***)

end;

Motaz.
