    Hi Jim,

    On madshi's website I found this

    You should be able to set if the "Email Bug Report" button using

    MESettings.SendBtnVisible := False;

    MESettings.SendBtnVisible := True;

    (I don't know in which unit the function MESettings is defined, might be MESettings.pas

    You can alse diable madExcept entirely using the procedure

    procedure PauseMadExcept (pause: boolean = true);

    Hi Jacco;

    Thanks for the information, I'll look over the Help section. I have the exception handler running in the background so its transparent to the user, hiding the Email button may not accomplish what I want since the user is unaware of the exception handler's presence.

    If the user reports a problem I want them to be able to turn the MadExcept reporting function on to assist in debugging the individual program.

    Then you might use the "PauseMadExcept" I mentioned?

    In what way do you use madExcept exactly?

    I think I gave the answer.

    The PauseMadExcept should do what visionetv wants. Pitty he didn't return so I could help him further.
