#251 closed defect (fixed)

Delete to trashcan needs to provide useful error messages

Reported by: stevenhl Owned by: gyoung
Priority: trivial Milestone: Release_3.18
Component: fm/2 base Version: 3.12
Keywords: Cc:


If a delete to trashcan fails, two thing must occur.

The error must be reported to the user in human-readable form (i.e. saymsg not Dos_Error). This is an expected error, not a should not occur error.

The code should offer to open the Trashcan so that the user can make space.

If not yet convinced that the code should offer to do the delete bypassing the Trashcan.

The problem here is that the error message is from the xworkplace trashcan not FM/2. I have updated the documentation to include an explanation of the out of drive space type error this generates.
