Get error code from Google AdSense API calls

In this article I explain about Get error code from Google AdSense API calls

Google AdSense APIs allow AdSense members to programmatically interact with AdSense accounts. However, when there is any exception in any AdSense API calls, it throws an Exception and the error code published by Google is wrapped somewhere deep inside the SOAP Exception. The following code snippet shows how to parse the SoapException class and retrieve the Google error code from it.

This function accepts the exception raised by Google AdSense API calls and returns the error code from the SoapException. If there is no valid error code, then it returns -1.

Public Shared Function GetErrorCode(ByVal ex As Exception) As Short
Dim errorCode As Short = -1

If (ex.GetType().FullName = "System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException") Then
Dim sx As System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException = ex

If (Not sx.Detail Is Nothing AndAlso Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(sx.Detail.InnerXml)) Then
Dim message As String = sx.Detail.InnerXml

message = "" + message + "" ' The XML message in the exception is not a valid XML. It does not have a ROOT node.

Dim doc As New Xml.XmlDocument

If (doc.GetElementsByTagName("ns1:code").Count > 0 AndAlso Not doc.GetElementsByTagName("ns1:code")(0).FirstChild Is Nothing) Then
Short.TryParse(doc.GetElementsByTagName("ns1:code")(0).FirstChild.Value, errorCode)
End If
End If
End If

Return errorCode
End Function
