"Error creating window handle."


I keep getting "Error creating window handle." now and
then while running my C# application. I've tried to figure
out why, but I'm stuck.

What is the usual cause of this error ? The error occurs
during a this.PointToScr een( newPos )-call, and "this" is
referencing a instantiated Form class....
newPos is of class Point.

I've occasionally seen this error when the automatically generated Windows
Forms code has got damaged somehow. If all else fails, try recreating the
form from scratch and then add your old code back in.

I am having a most frustrating problem that references, web searches, and other resources are no help so far in solving.

Hi, In my application, on some given actions while debugging in Visual Studio, I suddenly get a "System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception was unhandled" Message="Error creating window handle." exception. The problem is that this exception isn't raised somewhere in a method, so it just shows up, and it causes the application to shut down. Is there anyway how to catch this kinds of exceptions? Can I put somewhere a

We were testing a version of our app that's been running for months with no problems and it started throwing "Object no longer exists" messages on two machines in the test environment. We tried the same test scenario on a production box: no problems. Tried them on my developer box: no problems. In each of those two cases, the PC's were connected to the same test server and *supposedly* had the same production build image on them. ...

Hey guys, Here is whats happening. I have a StringBuilder, a TextBox, and a TabControl with one TabPage. On my main form, I created and displayed a fairly big maze. While the app is solving the maze, it appends each step it takes to the StringBuilder. When the maze is solved, the user can click a menu item to display the results. When the menu item is clicked, I set the TextBox Text value using the StringBuilder's ToString()...

I sometimes get a pop-up box that reads "Overflow" and the module that is executing pauses. It doesn't get caught by my error trapping, and it seems to be randow. By random, I mean usually in the same section of code, but I can run the code a few times, then it appears. I can't reproduce it when I want to, and I have no idea what is causing it. Any ideas ? Thanks By the way the code is some record manipulation of 2 recordsets.
