GetErrorDescription method


The GetErrorDescription method returns a text description of an xcdError, xcdWarning or xcdSkippingReason enumeration member.

This method is particularly useful in order to translate an error, warning or skipping reason code into English text in order to display a more detailed error than just the value of the error, warning or skipping reason code.

For example, to assign the description of the xerReadZipFile (505) error to a string, do this:

DescribeError = XceedZip1.GetErrorDescription(xvtError, 505);


DescribeError = XceedZip1.GetErrorDescription(xvtError, xerReadZipFile); 

Declaration ActiveX)  
Method GetErrorDescription(xType As xcdValueType, lValue As Long) As String                    
Declaration (DLL API)
