Which source code file? The one from which the executing method comes, or something else?

You can get the source file of the executing method using:
System.Diagnostics.StackTrace stack = new System.Diagnostics.StackTrace(true);
string executingFile = stack.GetFrame(0).GetFileName();

For this to work, you need to make sure that you "Generate debug info" in the Advanced Compile Options (Compile tab of the project's Properties window) and that you distribute the .pdb file that is generated along with the application.

Hi HLRosenberger,

I use the following to determine exact source of error using system.reflection.methodbase()
      Try
        ' ...

      Catch ex As Exception
        Dim sf As System.Diagnostics.StackFrame = New System.Diagnostics.StackFrame()
        Dim mb As System.Reflection.MethodBase = sf.GetMethod()
        Session("ErrorMessage") = "Error in " _
          & Context.Request.Url.ToString().Replace(Context.Request.Url.GetLeftPart(UriPartial.Authority) & VirtualPathUtility.ToAbsolute("~/"), "~/") _
          & "." & mb.Name _
          & "<br />" & ex.Message _
          & "<br />" & ex.Source
      End Try

Open in new window

Respectfully yours,
Alan

I see my question was completely ignored. I asked it for a reason. If you're working under .NET 4.5, then you might investigate The CallerFilePathAttribute class.
