You're sure that was a debugger player?
Don't tell me the uncaught error handler only works for a debugger version....??
The documentation, which I read quite carefully, doesn't have a word on this. It suggests rather the opposite:
"When content is running in a debugger version of the runtime, such as the debugger version of Flash Player or the AIR Debug Launcher (ADL), an uncaught error dialog appears when an uncaught error happens. For those runtime versions, the error dialog appears even when a listener is registered for the
uncaughtErrorevent. To prevent the dialog from appearing in that situation, call the UncaughtErrorEvent object's
Sorry, you are correct that all 10.1 and later players support
UncaughtError, but I believe only the debugger players have good information
in the UncaughtError.
There is also a known issue where Flex modules and other SWF content that
has had its SWF de-referenced don't have their errors caught.
Also, if you don't call preventDefault on the UncaughtError, only the
debugger player will show a dialog box.
And, of course, you have to make sure an error is actually being thrown and
not caught somewhere else.
Yep, thanks. The uncaught error handler does work in Chrome. I made a mistake (causing an error in the error handler), so everybody please disregard this discussion
