Method event handler for OnPasswordRequest event.







Code (Delphi)

TELEvPasswordRequestMeth = procedure(

const AModule: HMODULE;

var APassword: String;

var ACallNextHandler: Boolean

) of object;



AModule [in]

Module handle which password is retrieved.


APassword [out]

Password for debug information.


ACallNextHandler [out]

True (default) - call next registered event handler, False - do not call next event handler.



EurekaLog includes a OnPasswordRequest event for interaction with the user program when a raised exception is handled by EurekaLog and debug information was saved as encrypted. This event allow EurekaLog to obtain the exact password required to can decrypt all the encrypted data, otherwise all the data will be store in the bug report file in encrypted form, also error dialogs will show bug report in encrypted form.


The developer of application may use EurekaLog Viewer tool to decrypt encrypted bug reports.


You can use this event to supply your password to EurekaLog. By default this password is not stored in your executables. It's impossible to decrypt encrypted debug information without a password.


You can either ask user for password at run-time or retrieve it from application's configuration.



This event will not be called if password was obtained by some other means (for example, loaded from local cache, or supplied via --el_password= cmd line argument, etc.).



Event handlers registered via TEurekaLogEvents component will be active only when corresponding form is live (created). Such handlers will not be called before form is created or after it was destroyed. For this reason you may want to register your event handlers via code. For example, it would be a bad idea to use TEurekaLogEvents component for implementing your error dialog, because your dialog will not be displayed for exceptions outside form (e.g. initialization/finalization exceptions, as well as exceptions in form's constructor).
