This worked in VS 2008. It is Error Handler code

      <asp:LinkButton ID="DetailLinkButton" runat="server"
            OnClick="DetailLinkButton_Click">Show Details
        </asp:LinkButton>

protected void DetailLinkButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //Displays error details only to the web master
        {
            if (this.MessagePanel.Visible)
            {
                this.MessagePanel.Visible = false;
                this.DetailLinkButton.Text = "Show Details";
            }
            else
            {
                if (Message.LastException != null)
                {
                    this.MessageTextBox.Text = "Error Caught in Application_Error event\n" +
                        "Error in: " + Request.Url.ToString() +
                        "\n\nError Message:" + Message.LastException.Message.ToString() +
                        "\n\nStack Trace:" + Message.LastException.StackTrace.ToString();
                }
                else
                {
                    //this should never happen.
                    this.MessageTextBox.Text = "There is no exception.";
                }

Error in 2012

Error      1      The name 'Message' does not exist in the current context      C:\Users\Dovberman\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\StockPro\WebApplication1\ErrorHandling\ShowError.aspx.cs      93      21      StockPro

What replaces the Message object in vs 2012 ?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with a Message object in ASP.Net C# or VB.  Is it possible this was a user-defined class that didn't make it over (or was renamed) from VS2k8?

I partially fixed this.

http://bytes.com/topic/asp-net/answers/564850-global-error-handler

Added this line to the web.config file:

<!--
            The <customErrors> section enables configuration
            of what to do if/when an unhandled error occurs
            during the execution of a request. Specifically,
            it enables developers to configure html error pages
            to be displayed in place of a error stack trace.
            -->
    <customErrors mode="On" defaultRedirect="~/ErrorHandling/ShowError.aspx">
    </customErrors>

Message.LastException seems to be an error object.

Again, this worked in VS 2008 in .net 2.0.

if (Message.LastException != null)


Error      1      The name 'Message' does not exist in the current context      C:\Users\Dovberman\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\StockPro\WebApplication1\Global.asax.cs      16      9      StockPro

The message object was part of the exception class in vs 2008.

Message.LastException  represented the most recent error that was passed to the error handler.

Is there is new way to handle errors in vs 2012 using .net 4.5?

I removed this block of code that displayed the error message only if Admin was logged on.

I will display the exception detail to the Web Master within the Catch block instead .

protected void DetailLinkButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //Displays error details only to the web master
        {
            if (this.MessagePanel.Visible)
            {
                this.MessagePanel.Visible = false;
                this.DetailLinkButton.Text = "Show Details";
            }

            else
            {
                if (Message.LastException != null)
                {
                    this.MessageTextBox.Text = "Error Caught in Application_Error event\n" +
                        "Error in: " + Request.Url.ToString() +
                        "\n\nError Message:" + Message.LastException.Message.ToString() +
                        "\n\nStack Trace:" + Message.LastException.StackTrace.ToString();
                }
                else
                {
                    //this should never happen.
                    this.MessageTextBox.Text = "There is no exception.";
                }

                this.MessagePanel.Visible = true;
                this.DetailLinkButton.Text = "Hide Details";
            }}
