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?

Regards Jacco
I think I gave the answer.

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

I was really wondering on this one... Not quite sure that this had solved the issue... Although you can be right
