How can I shield the systematic error message?

Dear experts:
      Today I met with a headachy problem in my programming.I used a maskedit component,and I set its editmask "!0000/00/00" so that I can force the user to enter the right date with the format'yyyy-mm-dd'.But if the number of the numeric characters is less than 8,it would pop-up a systematic error message.Though I Used a "try ....except..",but it can' execute my customized section,i.e the except section.
      The reason I want to shield the systematic error message is that it is written in English,but I want to use another language to express it,so what shall I do?
Could you help me?Thank you very much.

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,  StdCtrls, Mask;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    MaskEdit1: TMaskEdit;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
testdate:tdatetime;
begin
 //the edit.mask is"!0000/00/00",i.e,force the user to input 8 numbers
 try
   testdate:=strtodate(maskedit1.text);
 except
   on edbediterror do //if the format is not
                     //"!0000/00/00",e.g. "111_11_11"
   showmessag'errorinput!');//this statement is always     omitted,
                              //instead of the systematic message error"invalid input value.Use escape key to abandon changes'
   on econverterror do //if it's an invalid datetime
   showmessage('error date!');
 end;
end;

end.

My program is above mentioned,could you help me to shield the systematic error message instead of show my own error message?
  I have tried kretzschmar's method,but it doesn't work,what shall I do?

Hi,
If you are testing your app from Delphi IDE, it will display the system error message. Then select Run-Run from the menu to continue the execution and you will see your custom message. When you build the app and run its exe outside Delphi, you will see your custom message only.

Then perhaps the system is generating another error type which you don't catch in the except block. Try:

try
  testdate:=strtodate(maskedit1.text);
except
  on edbediterror do //if the format is not
                    //"!0000/00/00",e.g. "111_11_11"
  showmessage('errorinput!');//this statement is always omitted,
                             //instead of the systematic message error"invalid input value.Use escape key to abandon changes'
  on econverterror do //if it's an invalid datetime
  showmessage('error date!');
  else
    ShowMessage('The error wasn't captured !');
end;

Regards, Geo

In Debugger Options, there is a "Stop on Delphi Exceptions" checkbox that you can uncheck if you don't want to see the system messages (provided they're caught).

Hi Russell,

I think that either kretzschmar's first comment or my second comment have solved the problem. Since there is no post from huaqiangsheng later on it's most likely that he got what he needed.

Geo,
I would have guessed that Meikl's try...except, or your's would have solved the problem as well. I will make a note on this.

Thanks,
Russell
