#4800 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add levels for the exception handler (UseExceptions() in Python), to listen to

Reported by: dcdgis24 Owned by: hobu
Priority: normal Milestone: closed_because_of_github_migration
Component: PythonBindings Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: Python, Exception Handling


When working with GDAL in Python it would be great if the UseExceptions handler could listen to warnings and debug messages. Something like :


Right now, I believe it only listens to CE_Error or CE_Fatal. This is great but when I come across some errors or maybe they are warnings the handler was not raising any exception and just hiding the error. For example the following error message was hidden and did not report when UseExceptions was set:

ERROR 5: Access window out of range in RasterIO() Requested (1,15) of size 25x3 on raster of 26x17

I have a stackexchange post about the issue here :

The file which proves that warning and debug messages are skipped is


  ** We do not want to interfere with warnings or debug messages since
  ** they won't be translated into exceptions.
  if (eclass == CE_Warning || eclass == CE_Debug ) {
    pfnPreviousHandler(eclass, code, msg );
