Box command stack full - Error Number?
« on: October 01, 2019, 02:19:29 pm »
One of my apps makes heavy use of box draw commands.

I've been using ErrNo 10108 to identify if the box command stack is full.

However, I was just looking up that err msg in the tech DB and found that article ID W15145 lists ErrNo 10108 as:
No such service is known. The service cannot be found in the specified name space.   WSASERVICE_NOT_FOUND

However, article ID W12754 confirms that the error message "Box command stack full" is ErrNo 10108, as I had coded into my app several years/versions ago.

Is this a change, an error, or something I am misunderstanding?

Article W15145 is referring to Windows System errors and not WinBatch or WIL errors.   You use system errors when WinBatch or an extender throws up a system error number in the message box launch by the WinBatch error dialog's "More Error Info" button.  The other article you referenced concerns a WinBatch error.

Ah, I didn't read it closely enough. Thanks Tony.
