    Detail from -- Catch ex As Exception

    My code is such
    Code:
        Public Sub OpenConnection()
            If (Me.con.State = ConnectionState.Closed) Then
                Try
                    Me.con.Open()
                Catch ex As Exception
                    Dim e = TryCast(ex, IContainsErrorRecord)
                    Dim message As String
                    If e IsNot Nothing Then
                        message = e.ErrorRecord.InvocationInfo.PositionMessage
                    Else
                        message = ex.Message
                    End If
                    Console.WriteLine(message)
                    MsgBox(ex.Message)
                    FailureOut = ex.Message
                    YesNo = True
                End Try
            End If
        End Sub
    I am wanting to get the MESSAGEDETAIL property but can't.
    I'm using the Imports System.Management.Automation

    Help please

    Bill

    If you want more information you can use "ex.ToString"

    Have you checked the InnerException "ex.InnerException"?
