Script Control

Posted on 2003-11-17

I get the run-time error -2147467259 (80004005).  Cannot call this method when the script is executing.

I have an app that uses the ScriptControl, when I close the the method ScriptControl.Reset is called which causes the above error.

How do I check that the script is executing or stop from doing so?

many thanks.
