Currently when error occur during input translation and/or validation steps such as "Unable to interpret Date or Time", etc. it can be hard to determine the field which is giving rise to the error especially in large or complicated applications.
It would be really useful if we could have an event handler exposed that allows us to catch such errors when they occur and run some custom code. This would allow developers to send out alerts or attempt to handle the error, log a stack trace to assist with debugging or simply catch details about what was happening when the error occured. Ideally the event would capture the field(s) where these errors occured to allow developers to quickly remedy the problem.

I do all the processing of filling the fields of all documents is on the QuerySave, and for dialogues QueryClose. I've long since forgotten that there are such errors.
What's the problem?

Hi Vlad,

The validation/input translations will happen before these events so this will not help you. But not to be distracted from the problem, should these types of errors ever occur it can be hard to determine their source as the information reported in the error is not very detailed.

If we could catch the error and then be able to determine what happened i.e. the field that threw the error, the value it was attempting to save, etc. and allow developers to write error handling code.

I wanted such a feature and it seems available in 8.5 that default error message is more detailed.

In the Notes client (8.5+) you now get told which field has the error
