Showing posts with the label Error

Error occurred in deployment step 'Install app for SharePoint': Sideloading of apps is not enabled on this site.

Log error in a separate file

You can log your applications errors in separate text file. Use this code

public static void WriteException(string msg)

Get error with details

You can log error with all details you want. Here is the example. You need to just pass the exception object & it will return you the whole error details which will be very helpful.

            StackTrace stackTrace = new StackTrace(ex, true);
            StackFrame stackFrame = stackTrace.GetFrame(stackTrace.FrameCount - 1);
            MethodBase methodBase = null;
                methodBase = stackFrame.GetMethod();
            catch { }
            errorRows.AppendLine("<b>Server         : </b>" + System.Environment.MachineName + "<HR/>");
            errorRows.AppendLine("<b>Date Time         : </b>" + DateTime.Now.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss") + "<HR/>");
                errorRows.AppendLine("<b>User    …
