The answer given there was to parse the idHttpClient.Response property.
Depends what your aim is with this: if this is analysis of your own site then you know what you do about 404's etc., but third-party sites often code up a more helpful 404 page, or simply fold the request back to the Home page.

Hi all,

I know how to capture the errors as above. What I need is to filter them...

For example:

If error := '404' then showmessage('Error is 404'); etc..

know what I mean?
