Dialog Box for Errors



Is there a way with SmartInspect to have SmartInspect field an exception and in addition to logging the exception, also showing a dialog box? We are coding with C#. This way we don’t need to add multiple lines to our Exception catches in code.




Hello Kent,

Thanks for your posting. You would need to implement this independently of SmartInspect and SmartInspect would only log exceptions (and does not display them as part of a dialog box, for example). The easiest way to implement this is to register a custom event handler for the global exception/error event (or as part of a catch block) and then:

  1. Show the dialog box
  2. Add the exception to the SmartInspect log using LogException

I hope this helps!
