trapping a windows runtime error
Posted on 2000-02-28
I'm writing a program and it has error trapping using the on error statement , but the program is crashing when it tries to execute a form.show command.....
the crash is a major crash and is not being trapped with the vb on error statement handler...the crash is a windows crash.....VB is not trapping the error, and the error message is from window, not vb
"this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down....if the problem persists contact the program vendor"
What could be happening to cause a huge error like this, i'm not allocating memory or using any user classes, it is just using forms and processing data?, and is there a way to trap a windows error some other way than with on error goto? Thanks.
