GetLastError

dev
Hi all,
Win2k IIS5
I am trying to capture some information about 404 errors occurring on our
website. I have defined a custom error page in IIS5 using the properties of
the site. I am creating a 404 error by mistyping an address. The custom
404 page is called, but there is no data in Server.GetLastE rror.

Code:
Dim objError
Set objError = Server.GetLastE rror()
strNumber = objError.AspCod e
strSource = objError.Catego ry
strPage = objError.File
strDesc = objError.Descri ption

What have I missed?

TIA,
Steve

Server.GetLastE rror only occurs for 500 errors, and can only be called in
the custom error page designated for 500 errors.

404s are handled differently. You can get some ideas here.

I am having trouble using Server.GetLastError() on my asp.net pages. I defines a standard error page in my web.config to handle all site errors, but the page that is supposed to handle the error creates an error itself.

Looking for some clarification here. I'm considering using HttpServerUtility.GetLastError in a standard errorhandler for all my pages. (Inherits System.Web.UI.Page and overrides OnError.)
