    Currently doing a simple error log for unhandled runtime errors:

    'Return true to allow the OS default exceptions handler to handle the uncaught exception.
    Sub Application_Error (Error As Exception, StackTrace As StringAs Boolean
    Return True
    End Sub

    Sub LogError(strErrorMsg As String)
    Dim str As String
    Dim strCurrentDateTime As String
    Dim strDateFormat As String
    'keep the current date format
     strDateFormat = DateTime.DateFormat
    DateTime.DateFormat = "EEE, d/MMM/yyyy HH:mm:ss"
     strCurrentDateTime = 
     str = 
    File.ReadString(strAppDir, "AppLog.txt")
    If str.Length = 0 Then
    File.WriteString(strAppDir, "AppLog.txt", strCurrentDateTime & CRLF & strErrorMsg)
    File.WriteString(strAppDir, "AppLog.txt", str & CRLF & CRLF & strCurrentDateTime & CRLF & strErrorMsg)
    End If
    DateTime.DateFormat = strDateFormat
    End Sub
    Is it possible to add some more information, eg module, sub and error line?

    Thanks, will keep that in mind.
    I think for now I can do it simpler by just parsing out the error Sub from the StackTrace as in
    Sub Application_Error (Error As Exception, StackTrace As String) As Boolean:

    Sub GetErrorSubFromStackTrace(strStackTrace As StringAs String
    Dim iPos1 As Int
    Dim iPos2 As Int
     iPos1 = strStackTrace.IndexOf(
    "b4a.sqlitelight1.") + 17
     iPos2 = strStackTrace.IndexOf2(
    "(", iPos1)
    Return strStackTrace.SubString2(iPos1, iPos2).Replace("_""")
    End Sub
    I take it it is not possible to get the B4A error line, from runtime data, unless you log every code line that runs,
    but that would be too much trouble.

    The line number is not available at runtime.

    What is this reference to sqlitelight1 for?

    Is this GetErrorSubFromStackTrace routine custom designed for you app and that's why it includes the sqlitelight1 reference?

    Or is this reference needed for use with any b4a app?
