Hello!

What am I doing wrong ?

I want to intercept an exception without getting it to pop out.  Here a sample code:

try
max := 0;
temp := FloatToStr(100 / max);
except
  showmessage('error');
end;

Here, I want to get the showmessage BUT NOT the Delphi error of division by 0.  I know it sounds stupid, but now I get both!

Any hint ??
Thanks!!

You're not doing anything wrong. It's correct what you did.

The Delphi error box only is shown inside of the IDE this way. Try it outside of the IDE and the Delphi box will not be shown.
