[Protect] ... [/Protect] protects a portion of a page.

If code inside the container throws an error or a [Fail] tag is exected inside the container then the error is not allowed to propagate outside the protected block.

If the [Protect] ... [/Protect] container includes any [Handle] ... [/Handle] tags they will be called when an error is reported within the container or when the container completes.

Note: Custom tags, included files, and libraries are all surrounded by an implicit set of [Protect] ... [/Protect] tags.




No Parameters Required.
