But while we are on the subject how would one show the "Please Wait" dialog from within an ExceptAction Handler?

> I get a "Please Wait" for a second or two then nothing.

So "ssNothing" does work, after all? Without setting "ssNothing" you get the full exception dialog, don't you?

Sort of, it doesn't send anything. But regardless that's not what I want:
1) I want the assistant to show up
2) I want it to continue to ExceptAction handler with eaSendBugReport2

The only reason "Please Wait" didn't show up my real project is because I haven't figured out how to show it inside the ExceptAction handler.

Do you have "automatically send bug report" checked in the madExcept settings?

No

EDIT:

But that makes no difference:

Code: Select all
procedure TForm1.MadExceptionHandler1ExceptAction(action: TExceptAction; const exceptIntf: IMEException; var handled: Boolean);
begin
   if (action=eaSendBugReport2) then
     Beep;
end;

procedure TForm1.btRaiseClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  raise Exception.Create('Error Message');
end;

procedure TForm1.MadExceptionHandler1Exception(const exceptIntf: IMEException; var handled: Boolean);
begin
  exceptIntf.ShowSetting := ssNothing;
  exceptIntf.SendAssistant := 'PrintAssistant';
end;

Then why should madExcept send the bug report? :) It only does that if you ask it to.

You can do "exceptIntf.AutoSend := true" to activate automatic sending. However, this needs to be set early enough. You seem to be using the madExcept VCL component to register your exception handler? Try manually calling RegisterExceptionHandler() instead, that will give you more control over how and when your handler will get calledl I'd suggest "epQuickFiltering" to make sure that your handler gets called early enough so that setting "AutoSend := true" actually takes effect.

See my edit to the last post.

In my real app I use: RegisterExceptionHandler, but in this simple app you can see nothing but the two lines you suggested are in the Handler.
