Hi.

I update some data using the TClientDataSet.ApplyUpdates(0) method (TClientdataSet is connected to a TDataSetProvider which is connected to a TQuery).  This method returns the number of errors that occured while executing.

My question is simple :  how can I know what error actually did occured ?

Thanks :)

do it like this:

  try
    ClientDataSet1.ApplyUpdates(0);
  except
    on E: Exception do
      begin
        MessageDlg(E.Message, mtError, [mbOK], 0);
        Exit;
      end;
  end;

  E.Message will give the exception error message, which is detailed error.

Hi.

Thanks for the comment.

The thing is that ClientDataSet1.ApplyUpdates(0) is a function returning an integer which is the number of errors that occured while updating the dataset.  Though I haven't tried it yet, I do believe that the actual call of this method CAN raise an exception (like if the dataset is locked or unavailable) but that is not what I'm really looking for.

For example, lets say the function returns 3.  I want to know what actully are those 3 errors that occured.

Thanks :)

in your case "ClientDataSet1.ApplyUpdates(0);" you send 0 for MaxErrors. This means if there is more than 0 errors, for e.g. 1 - you will go into the "except" block. There you have E.Message.

If you have more than 1 errors, you have to work with Reconcile method. Handle the errors in OnReconcileError.
