IBM i Access for Windows Toolkit

Error handling

The following sample programs are available to help develop applications using the IBM i Access for Windows error handling APIs:

ActiveX automation objects

  • Click to show description d_allobj.exe – Delphi 4 sample using the IBM i Access for Windows automation objects.

    This Delphi 4 sample uses the IBM i Access for Windows automation objects to perform the following:

  • Click to show description vballobj.exe – Visual Basic sample using the IBM i Access for Windows automation objects.

    This Visual Basic sample uses the IBM i Access for Windows automation objects to perform the following:

  • Click to show description vbsallob.exe – Visual Basic Script sample using the IBM i Access for Windows automation objects.

    This Visual Basic Script sample uses the IBM i Access for Windows automation objects to perform the following:

    This sample requires the file cwbxvbs.inc which is installed in the Include directory as part of the IBM i Access for Windows Toolkit. This file must be in the same directory as the files from this sample.

    Note: If you get the following error while running this script:
    "ActiveX component can't create object: 'createobject'"
    please see Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q195826.

C/C++ APIs

  • Click to show description coconsce.exe – Use of Communications System Object APIs in various connection scenarios.

    This sample demonstrates how an application might use the IBM i Access for Windows Communication APIs related to System Objects. In this example, these APIs are used to create system objects and to set their attributes according to the security and performance requirements of various scenarios. The system objects are then used to run remote commands (using the Remote Command APIs and Service APIs) and to validate user IDs and passwords, and the behavior and some elapsed times can be observed by the user.

  • Click to show description logtrace.exe – Sample program showing usage of the IBM i Access for Windows service log and trace APIs.

    This module is used to demonstrate how an application might use the IBM i Access for Windows Serviceability APIs. In this example, these APIs are used to log a message to the history log, and log trace points to the detail trace file.

  • Click to show description rcsamp1x.exe – Demonstrates the use of the Remote Program Call API.

    This sample demonstrates using the IBM i Access for Windows Remote Program Call APIs, National Language Support APIs, and the Service APIs to call an OS/400 API and return its output to the PC.
