WebDevGetSecureError () Returns errortext


Note: The flag is set according to whether Omnis was able to make a call to this external command.

This Web command is multi-threaded, allowing another thread to execute in the multi-threaded server while it runs. Note that the same socket cannot safely be used concurrently by more than one thread.

If you are using, or attempting to use, a secure connection to a server, the installed SSL library (that provides the ability to establish secure connections) may return useful error text. When this occurs, the Web command returns the error code -1021. You can use WebDevGetSecureError to return this error text.

Omnis maintains a separate copy of the secure error text, for each thread in the multi-threaded server.


Calculate lServer as 'my.pop3.server'
Calculate lUserName as 'myusername'
Calculate lPassword as 'mypassword'
POP3Connect (lServer,lUserName,lPassword,"",kTrue) Returns iSocket
If iSocket=-1021
  WebDevGetSecureError Returns lSecureErrorText
End If
