This chapter discusses error handling in Visual Basic applications. Being able
to trap, identify, and handle errors is a vital part of developing a user-friendly
application. Error trapping and error handling can provide important feedback
to the user about why an error occurred. The information provided through error
handling can also help the developer find, correct, and prevent errors.
Trapping and handling errors in an Executable is covered in this chapter as
well as dealing with errors at design time while debugging a project.
You will learn different ways to trap errors when they occur and to handle
different error situations. In this chapter, recommendations for creating common
error handling procedures are provided along with examples of how error information
should be presented to the user.
