I’ve seen a lot of posts about stack trace and exceptions in Python. But haven’t found what I need.
I have a chunk of Python 2.7 code that may raise an exception. I would like to catch it and assign to a string its full description and the stack trace that caused the error (simply all we use to see on the console). I need this string to print it to a text box in the GUI.
Something like this:
try: method_that_can_raise_an_exception(params) except Exception as e: print_to_textbox(complete_exception_description(e))
The problem is: what is the function
Now we will see solution for issue: Get exception description and stack trace which caused an exception, all as a string
traceback module, specifically the
format_exc() function. Here.
import traceback try: raise ValueError except ValueError: tb = traceback.format_exc() else: tb = "No error" finally: print tb
