Does AutoIt provide a description for the errors returned by the @ERROR macro?

I have seen some posts that seem to address this simple question, but the responses go off in many tangents. I am looking for something like the vbScript err.description:

VBScript Err Object:


Description Property The descriptive string associated with an error.

HelpContext Property A context ID for a topic in a Windows help file.

HelpFile Property A fully qualified path to a Windows help file.

Number Property A numeric value identifying an error.

Source Property The name of the object or application that originally generated the error.


Clear Method Clears all property settings.

Raise Method Generate a run-time error.

Look for @gafrost for the answer under bugs. I think they are updating it, but i think you will have to use IF statement and create your own msgbox.

All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."
