Error reporting system for Metro Style Apps (JavaScript / HTML)

    Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to develop an error handling and reporting system in my Metro Style App that send me a report about the errors that are been thrown. Every time an error is thrown, I would like to ask the user if he would like to send a report about that error (to have improvement statistics).

    Is there a way of doing this?

    How can I know what errors the user is experiencing?

    Thanks

  • There is a built in error reporting system for all Metro style applications.  Any unhandled errors, crashes, JavaScript exceptions, etc. are reported and can be viewed from your account on the Windows Store. 

    See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh967782.aspx for more details.  You should use the built-in mechanisms for gathering quality statistics, and not roll your own custom method - there should be consistency within the app marketplace for how this is handled.

  • I still propose to change the wording of WER. It should not say "Send Report to MS" but just say "Send Error Report" or "Send Report to App Publisher". People do not want send data to MS for various reasons.
