Control Descriptions: Error Report

Using the Error Report control, you can create special text areas for displaying errors on user-defined forms. If a user-defined form (with an Error Report control on it) is set as the error form for an event or for the whole application, it will display errors encountered by the event or application. To set up an error form, see Handling Application Errors.

Presentation Designer Error Report controls allow users to type in them, and copy text from them.
