I want to use the customerrors page but I want the page to show the error.
I read that the customerror page has in its querystring the error but I don't succeed to get it.
I write <%=Request.QueryString["ErrorPage"] %> but I got nothing.
How do I get the error?
(the GetLastError() is not relevant here ofcourse).

Hi ANAT2403,
the errorpage variable you see in querystring is not the error (exception) itself.
To get the error you should use GetLastError() and for example you could use GetLastError in global asax (where I presume you hadle the error event) and store it on session, then redirect to an error page that reads the error from session and presents it.
However, this is not custom error pages. In order to set different pages for custom errors, you should configure them from IIS manager, but I don't think that is what you want.
