How to I trap EOLEException exceptions that occur during OLEDB operations, specifically ADO database methods?

I've tried the standard exception code :
try
 ado.database.commands.here;
except
 on EOLEException do AppException;
end;

This doesn't trap the EOLEException, or at least suppress it.

What I'm loooking for is a way to suppress the program displaying the EOLEException message.

Any ideas?

in formcreate:
application.OnException := myError;
end;

procedure TForm1.myError(Sender: TOBject; Error: Exception);
begin
screen.cursor := crDefault;
ShowMessage('An error....;-(');
end;

Your code should trap that exception but not when you run it inside the Delphi debugger. Run the app as stand-alone and see what happens.

Use this to test it:

var ADOTable1: TADOTable;
begin
  try
    ADOTable1.First;
  except
    ShowMessage('Trapped');
  end;
end;


But Florisb's example should work too.

Thanks guys, but I've already got that and what happens is the exception is raised before my handler is called.

Is there something that I'm missing.

Below is my code:

type
  TfrmSetup = class(TForm)
....
....
public
    { Public declarations }
    procedure AppException(Sender: TObject; E: Exception);
end;

....
....

procedure TfrmSetup.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
  Reg   : TRegistry;
begin
  Application.OnException := frmSetup.AppException;
....
....
end;

....
....
try
    BuildAccessDB(Self);
  except
    on E : EOleException do AppException(Self,E);
  end;
....

This handler is not called until after the exception is displayed, which is not what the help pages say. The help says that the ShowException method will be called unless an OnException event handler is declared ...

Run it outside Delphi! Delphi always raises the exceptions, no matter what you do.
