ASP.NET Error page - possible to generate?

P: n/a
Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to generate, in code, exactly (or close to it) the
detailed error page generated by (IIS? ASP.NET? .NET Framework?) when
an exception is thrown in a ASP.NET web application using C#?


I am an experienced programmer doing my first web application for an
intranet doing ASP.NET.

I have a page where I collect information from DBs on a bunch of
different machines and display the info to the user. If accessing one
of the DBs throws an exception, I get a great page generated by (IIS?
ASP.NET? .NET Framework?) with detailed information about where in the
code the exception occured, stack crawl, detailed explanation, etc.

However, if I have problems with only one machine, this detailed error
page hides all the other info, therefore, I have to "catch" the error
and generate a "normal" page with text indicating that some of the
info could not be retreived.

I would like to be able to generate the detailed error page, and put a
link to the page in the "normal" page so that the user can give me
detailed error information. Even better, I would like to be able to
mail myself the page, but I would guess that I can figure out how to
do that. What I'm looking for are pointers for how to generate the
error page.
