Type Description

A string value specifying the text to display in the message box/tooltip.


If the ExceptionEventArgs.ExceptionMode property is set to ExceptionMode.DisplayError, the message box displaying the text specified by the ErrorText property is invoked. The message box’s caption is specified by the ExceptionEventArgs.WindowCaption property.

When handling container control events that occur when assigning invalid values to cells, setting the ExceptionEventArgs.ExceptionMode property to ExceptionMode.DisplayError displays a tooltip with the ErrorText string.
