How do I change the Severity of Runtime Errors?

How do I change the Severity of Runtime Errors?

You can do this using the ErrorAdd function (see SilkPerformer's online help for full details). This requires you to identify the element or "FACILITY" of the error you want to amend. The facilities available for runtime errors are outlined below.


FACILITY_RT - The main Runtime errors, e.g. Runtime: 30 - Attribute access failed.

FACILITY_RESERR - Mainly "cannot do this" errors ,e.g. file cannot be opened, SQL statement too long, insufficient memory, used database not found on server, ...

FACILITY_RUNERR - Mainly BDL dependent, e.g. stack error, invalid data address, invalid operation code, there is no active SQL statement, actual length of source string longer than maximal length of destination string in assignment, zero division ...

Usage Example:

  nInterval := AttributeGetInt("MeasureCollectionInterval"); 
  ErrorRemove(FACILITY_RT, 30);
