I'm looking for some community input on the pros and cons of using either the Error Code Text file, or the Error Ring for creating custom errors in an application. My question comes about as a result of this post.
I've used the Error Rings exclusively in the past to avoid the extra maintenance steps of bringing the text file along with the LV project and source control. I assumed the error information was simply converted to ring constant. But with my linked post above, I'm wondering how deep my mistakes may cut me.
Please weight in on this with pros/cons, , and any past experiences that may be helpful.
