Try/Except to suppress MsgBox from EInOutError

Posted on 2002-05-02

Delphi 5 program runs in both Batch and Interactive mode.
When run in Batch mode I wish to suppress all msgboxs so that the run is not impeded.
This can be done by sprinkling  '$I'  comments throughout the program.
It should be possible to use try/except to trap all these EInOuterror  's between try AND except.
I find that during testing if I force one of the exceptions to be thrown , say by
writing to an unopened file, that a MsgBox comes up from the system and then my
exception handler code is executed.

 Am I missing something? Can I somehow stop the system from putting up the messagebox
 In my Exception handling code I want a MsgBox only if in Interactive mode and I want
 to log and error message regardless of the run mode.
 
 Below is an outline of what I tried:
 
/////// Begin $I
{$I-}
 Writeln(gfProgLog,'PROJECT_ID!   CASEID! IwLength(minutes) '); ///!!!!!!! noit open yet
{$I+}
 if IOResult <> 0 then
       Writeln(fLog,'Handle IO error by self.');
       
ASSIGNFILE( gfProgLog, 'c:\AR_Programmer.log' ); // open single LOG file
REWRITE( gfProgLog );      
\\\\\\ END $I


////// BEGIN Exception code
       
try

-->     ENTIRE PROCEDURE HERE <---

except      {end big try}
on  E :EInOutError do
begin  
  if gbBatchMode = false then
    MessageDlg('AR:I/O error ' + E.Message + ' Line# ' + IntToStr(nLineCnt) + ' file: ' + slFileList[I], mtWarning, [mbOk], 0)
    { specific exception-handling code }
  else
  begin    
    writeln(fLog,'AR:I/O error ' + sTemp + ' Line# ' + IntToStr(nLineCnt) + ' file: ' + slFileList[I] );
  end;
end ;
on  E :EStringListError do
begin
        ......
end;
else
  begin
    if gbBatchMode = false then
      MessageDlg('AR:Unhandled non-IO/non Stringlist error :no message yet ' + ' Line# ' + IntToStr(nLineCnt) + ' file: ' + slFileList[I], mtWarning, [mbOk], 0)
    else
      writeln(fLog,'AR: unhandled non- IO error ' + sTemp + ' Line# ' + IntToStr(nLineCnt) + ' file: ' + slFileList[I] );
  end;
    { default exception-handling code };
end;  {except}

Can't you use a TApplicationEvents' OnException eventhandler for that?



Good luck!!

For example:

procedure TForm1.ApplicationEvents1Exception(Sender: TObject;
  E: Exception);
begin
 if (E is EInOutError) then
 begin
   //yada
   //yada
   //yada
   //yada
 end;
end;

For example:

procedure TForm1.ApplicationEvents1Exception(Sender: TObject;
  E: Exception);
begin
 if (E is EInOutError) then
 begin
   //yada
   //yada
   //yada
   //yada

I created
 procedure TForm1.ApplicationEvents1Exception
As you advised. Is there anyway to get the execution
to resume where the error occurred? Say the prog is
processing a series of files. It would be great to be
able to continue processing with the next file

Hmmm... well, it seems that you're using a TStringList to keep track of the files that you're processing. If this is so, then I would imagine that you should be able to delete the file name once you're done with it. Now, in the OnException, you could simply call the routine again that processes the files. It might be necessary to delete the first item from the TStringlist first, however, since presumably that was the one that gave you an error in the first place (it wasn't processed and deleted within the processing routine).Of course the filelist  will have to be global. Psuedocode looks like this:



Routine -> Process files
OnException ->deletes the first file in the que and calls routine to continue.


Good luck!!

Better PsuedoCode:

Routine:
   while Filelist.count>0
   Process file
   Delete Filename from fileList
   Continue;

OnException:
       Delete FileList[0]//get rid of the offending file
       possibly WriteToLog('FileList[0] failed')
       Call Routine;


Good luck!!

Many Thanks Dr Delphi
I really like the idea of using index == 0
together w/ deletion of string.
I'll be back. Mark
