Redirecting to an Error Page

The SPUtility.TransferToErrorPage method is a convenient way to redirect users to an error page in the event that an unhandled exception occurs. This post (from Wellington no less!) covers this method and a few other static methods from the SPUtility class well. One thing worth pointing out is the use of the second overload to the TransferToErrorPage method. This allows a link to appear in the message so that users can be redirected to another page (for example to a long running job status list item for more information on the error). To use this override, pass the link text and link url and then include a '{0}' (like the composite format syntax) in your message where you need the link to appear.
