VB and localerror

Hello,

Has anybody ever heard of localerror
in VB, by the way it is not a user created error label.

Thank you for your time!

"On Local Error" goes back to VB1-VB3.

Back then, you couldn't use the On Error Goto and On Event Gosub statements in a form because they require an event handler at the module level, and you couldn't enter code at the module level of a form... Line labels and line numbers were allowed in the module level of a form module, but they are useless.


See the following Microsoft KB articles:

Error: Executable code not allowed in module level of a form

The only mention of it in MSDN is:

Private Function AnyFunction() As Integer

On Error GoTo LocalError
' Normal procedure code goes here.

Exit Function
LocalError:
If Fatal("Module.AnyFunction") = vbRetry Then
    Resume
Else
    Resume Next
End If

End Function

But that is a local defined error label.

On Local Error Goto....

Never noticed any difference between this and the On Error construct.

Perhaps it's something that's in VB for backward compatibility but ceased to have a noticeable effect. Like showing a message box system modal. The system modal option is still there, but it doesn't actually work anymore in Win32.

Instead. Microsoft has changed the way that their links work and these are the new style.

hi TimCottee,
             Thank u. I think Microsoft had shifted many thing from ASP to ASP.NET.
             Now both the links works.
