Delphi Connection Failure. How to stop message?

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to trap ADO errors in Delphi 7.  If I stop my SQL server or disconnect the network cable and run a query I get the error "Connection Failure".

I would like to stop this error from being displayed to the user and handle it internally like so....

procedure TForm1.ADOConnection1ExecuteComplete(Connection: TADOConnection;
  RecordsAffected: Integer; const Error: Error;
  var EventStatus: TEventStatus; const Command: _Command;
  const Recordset: _Recordset);
begin
   If EventStatus = esErrorsOccured Then
   Begin
      ShowMessage('show custom error.');
   End;
end;



So I can trap that an error has occured but I can't stop the application showing the ADO message of "Connection Failure"

How do I stop this error showing to the user?


Thanks

Have You tried such a construction while establishing connection?

  try
    ADOConnection1.Connected := True;
    ADOQuery1.Active := True;
  except
    on E: exception do ShowMessage('Fatal error: ' + E.Message);
    end;

In place of ShowMessage You can execute some other desired action.

Yes that does work but I was hoping for a more centralised solution to the problem.  I'd hoped I could catch all the exceptions on the connection rather than putting exception trapping round every single query in my large project.  Is this possible?

More centralized is:
- place ApplicationEvents component on a form.
- use its OnException event handler

procedure TForm1.ApplicationEvents1Exception(Sender: TObject;
  E: Exception);
begin
  ShowMessage(E.Message);
end;
