Reference Controls from Class

hi

I have some code below which I call in my procedure to handle errors. I want to put this into class so that I don't have to keep on pasting this code into every page. Problem is that I cannot reference controls or use "Request" I use the request.servervariables so that i can view detailed error msgs but only from my ip address

Any ideas on how to do this
Private Sub ErrorHandler(ByVal ex As Exception, ByVal strMethod As String)
		pnlError.Visible = True
		pnlGUI.Visible = False
		lblErrorMSG.Text = "<p>An error has occured please try again "
		If Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR") = "IP ADRESS" Then
			lblErrorMSG.Text += "Error Description: Problem in """ & strMethod & """:<br /> " & ex.Message
			txtError.Text = txtError.Text & vbCrLf & "StackTrace:" & vbCrLf & ex.StackTrace
			txtError.Text = txtError.Text & vbCrLf & "Method:" & ex.TargetSite.ToString()
			txtError.Text = txtError.Text & vbCrLf & "URL: " & Request.RawUrl
		Else
			txtError.Visible = False
		End If
	End Sub

Hello patelajk,

The second one is the easy part,

HttpContext.Current.Request.ServerVariables()

Will allow you to use that object, in fact any of the objects: server/response/request etc can all be dealt with the same way.

As for the first one, you could pass in a reference to the page object and handle it that way:

Public Sub ErrorHandler(ByRef CallingPage As System.Web.UI.Page, ByVal ex As Exception, ByVal strMethod As String)

Then use CallingPge.pnlError.Visible etc

Called by passing in the relevant object:

MyErrorHandlingClass.ErrorHandler(Me,ex,"Some Method")

Regards,

TimCottee

patelajk,

From the page where you would call it, pass the page in as "Me"  as here:
MyErrorHandlingClass.ErrorHandler(Me,ex,"Some Method")

Thanks for that... but got another problem now

I got this in my class
Public Class ErrorCatching

      Public Shared Sub ErrorHandler(ByRef CallingPage As System.Web.UI.Page, ByVal ex As Exception, ByVal strMethod As String)
            Dim pnlError As Panel = CallingPage.FindControl("pnlError")
            Dim pnlGUI As Panel = CallingPage.FindControl("pnlGUI")
            Dim lblErrorMSG As Label = CallingPage.FindControl("lblErrorMSG")
            Dim txtError As TextBox = CallingPage.FindControl("txtError")

            pnlError.Visible = True
            pnlGUI.Visible = False
end sub

and in my .aspx page
i have
ErrorCatching.ErrorHandler(Me, ex, "GetClientName")

i get an error saying that it can't find the controls i.e. pnlError which is on the .aspx page
