BetterWin32Errors

NuGet

A better interface to the constants defined in winerror.h

Simplified Error Handling

Instead of:

if (!SomeWin32ApiCall(...))
{
    throw new System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception(Marshal.GetLastWin32Error());
}

You can do this:

if (!SomeWin32ApiCall(...))
{
    throw new BetterWin32Errors.Win32Exception();
}

Access To Error Constants

Instead of re-defining platform constants in your code:

const int ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND = 2;
const int ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND = 3;

if (!SomeWin32ApiCall(...))
{
    var error = Marshal.GetLastWin32Error();
    if (error == ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
    {
        // ...do something...
    }
    else if (error == ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND)
    {
        // ...do something else...
    }
    else
    {
      throw new System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception(error);
    }
}

You can do this:

if (!SomeWin32ApiCall(...))
{
    var error = Win32Exception.GetLastWin32Error();
    if (error == Win32Error.ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
    {
        // ...do something...
    }
    else if (error == Win32Error.ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND)
    {
        // ...do something else...
    }
    else
    {
        throw new Win32Exception(error);
    }
}

Exception Has Both ID and Message

try
{
    // ...some code...
}
catch (BetterWin32Errors.Win32Exception ex)
	when (ex.Error == Win32Error.ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) // use `Error` to get the error ID
{
	Console.WriteLine("Warning: " + ex.ErrorMessage);
    // Output: "Warning: The system cannot find the file specified"
}

Installation

Install-Package BetterWin32Errors

The only import you need to know is:

using BetterWin32Errors;

Limitations

There are thousands of error constants defined in <winerror.h>. All error constants included in this library were parsed using a script. As such, there is no guarantee that the error constants have the correct values in all cases and for all platforms. Feel free to submit an issue if you run into such a problem.
