Line Number and Line Position


When it is a syntax error, we get line number and line position in error message:
     After parsing a value an unexpected character was encountered: :. Line 4, position 21.
However, when it is a type error, we do not get line number and line position:
     Invalid type. Expected String but got Integer.
Can we always get line number and line position? How?
Thanks for your time.

The validation event args has that information on it.

Hi. Please include the complete stacktrace so I have an idea of where the error is being thrown from.
