Hi,
    i try to connect to a tcpserver application, but when server is not
reachable i got "Socket Error #10057. Socket is not connected" msg although
i wrapped everything into try..except and try..finally blocks...

here is my code:
=================================================================
  try
    TCPClient.Host := DefaultServerIP;
    TCPClient.Port := DefaultServerPort;
    TCPClient.Connect;
    try
      try
        // Communications here
      finally TCPClient.Disconnect; end;
    except
      on E: EIdException do
        begin
          ShowMessage('An network error occurred during communication: ' +
E.Message);
        end;
      on E: Exception do
        begin
          ShowMessage('An unknown error occurred during communication: '+
E.Message);
        end;
    end;
  except
    on E: EIdException do
      begin
        ShowMessage('An network error occurred while trying to connect: '+
E.Message);
      end;
    on E: Exception do
      begin
        ShowMessage('An unknown error occurred while trying to connect: '+
E.Message);
      end;
  end;
=================================================================
why TCPClient.Connect; causes msg popup and how to get rid of that?

   Thanks in advance

within the ide, the ide itself will catch the exception and popup before the app handle/discard it
or is it outside the ide?

i use TidTCPClient component, maybe i should mention that.

there is try before .connect.
i got this error, no matter if i run prg from ide, (normal or trace) or as win prg (.exe) with delphi closed.
