Error code decoder

EDIT. Aug 2020 Massive update to the list. (See below for the PID loop errors).

I’m guessing many of you have used the handy feature in PAC Control under Help > Error Lookup which takes an error code, say:
-9
and converts it into more human understandable text, like:
“Timeout. No response from device. Check hardware connection, address, power, and jumpers.”
You’ll see these same error descriptions when inspecting the message queue.

But have you ever wanted to have this information available from within your strategy, perhaps to display in PAC Display or log to a file? I’ve attached a subroutine to convert the current error values into their corresponding messages (remember that these might be expanded in the future).

Below I’ve included the code if you’d just like to copy it directly. For more info on all of these, see form 1700: PAC Control User’s Guide, appendix B.

Great Idea…
Thanks

Nice stuff!

How can i resolve -454 and -443 errors?

Errors coming in sending mails

I did a search for -454 in the Forums, and found this one; PAC Control "Open Outgoing Communication" command returning uncommon error code

The other error is a little trickier, it may be related to the first one, or to gmail itself. (I am assuming you are trying to send gmail?).

Bottom line for both, check DNS, gateway and IP addresses through the path.

Yeah i am trying to send gmail, but unable to do due to this error. Guide me to change the gateway and DNS server address of the strategy. I have changed the gateway and DNS by the PAC manager but still the error comes along. I have used an Ethernet switch in which my laptop, the R1 controller and my internet network is connected. Guide me solving these errors.

Please work with your IT department to get those settings sorted.

Also there is a lot of help given in this thread here; Send an email from a controller

Thank you very much for your guidance :slight_smile:

Great Stuff! Thank you

How I can resolve Error -12 and -69?

-12 is table outside of index.
That means you have a bug in your code that is addressing a table index that does not exist.

-69 is empty pointer.
That means you have a bug in your code that is addressing a pointer that is blank.

In both cases, don’t panic.
In the first instance, look for an index that is one more than your table size.
Remember, tables start at 0, its easy to address outside of limits by going 1 higher than the table size.

Empty pointer is a bit trickier, but you should be able to see what block is causing the error and narrow it down from there.

You can look up errors quickly from within PAC Control. Just click on Help -> Error Lookup.

When I updated the list in Aug 2020, it became too long for the forum body (turns out it has character limit - who knew).
I trimmed the PID loop errors.
Here they are if you want to add them back into the master list.
