Hello All,

Any ideas to why my application won't read my error handler routine? In other words, I place some bad code, but Visual Basic error code appears and I can't get it to default to my error handler. Has something changed in the VB IDE? HELP. ADawn

On Error Goto ErrorHandler

     'Somewhere in here place bad code...

Exit_ErrorHandler:
Exit Sub
 
ErrorHandler:
 
  MsgBox "I_Should_See_This_Message"   'If working, I should see this message
 
  Call PublicMessengerErrors        
  Call ErrorLogger("cmdButtons_Click")
  Resume Exit_ErrorHandler
 
End Sub

Right-click anywhere in the code editor where it is blank, select Toggle, then Break in class module.

I think I found the problem. In the VB IDE there is a selection in Options: "Break On All Errors." I deselected this option (I selected: Break On Class Module) and now my code is read.

Question: Which option should be selected when I finally compile and distribute my application?

Thanks to All, ADawn.

One more note which you may already be aware of?  But if you are calling other procedures without error handling then VB errors will appear.

So ...

Private Sub TestMe()
   On Error Goto err_Handler
   Call AnotherTest
   Exit sub

err_Handler:
   MsgBox "I see it!"
End Sub

Private Sub AnotherTest()
   Err.Raise 13
End Sub

Hope this helps
