User supplied error message display function
void ZFAPICALLBACK MyError( char FAR *lpszErrorText)
Null terminated string containing explanatory text for error
This routine should be defined within the application program itself - it can have any name. Its address is passed as one of the parameters to ZfxAPIInit , and it is called by the API before the API routines return certain error codes, to give additional text explaining why the call failed. For example, if a SUBMIT file is rejected the API will call this routine with the reason, before returning the error code ZFERR_SUBMIT_FILE_INVALID.
For programs which interact with the user the text is probably best displayed on screen, as an additional help to any error message which the program itself may display as a result of the returned error code. Other programs may wish to log the error to disk or ignore it (defining an empty function) as required. Note that a FAR (32-bit) pointer to the string is supplied - in 16 bit environments the "%Fs" (or equivalent) format specifier will be needed in calls to printf etc.
There is no return value.
void ZFAPICALLBACK DisplayAPIError( char FAR *lpszText)
/* Note - remember to use %Fs in 16 bit */
/* programs because it is a FAR pointer */
printf("*API ERROR* %Fs\n", lpszText);
