Hello all,

I've written a simple OCX which sources some timed events and cause callback
code in my VBScript to be executed (initiated by way of the second argument
in a CreateObject( ) call).

The problem is that when I make a mistake in the scripts callback code I get
a continuous stream of error dialogs (one for each event).

Question:
- Is there a mechanism with which I can have my OCX check if the scripts
engine is in an error state (so it can suspend its sending of the timed
events) ?

- Should I be using another approach, and if so which one ?
