Problems with "On Error"

Hi!

I'm developing an application under Visual Basic 6.0 and I'm not able to manage errors. It seems that VB doesn't allows me to take control on errors.

I've tried with On Error Goto <name_of_label>, On Error Resume Next... but when an error occurs, the application stops showing the error.

For example, with this code:
--------------------------------
On Error Resume Next

Err.Raise cdlCancel

MsgBox "Error number: " & cdlCancel
--------------------------------

The application stops on the "err.raise" line (the same happens if I use a label to handle the error)

Can anybody help me?

Thanks!

Hi shalmorion,

Is this in the IDE or a compiled application? In the IDE you can set whether the application reacts in this way independently of any error handling you have, right-click the main code window, choose "Toggle" then see what is displayed for the error handling. You may have "Break on all errors" set. This will display the error message even if you have error handling.
