Simple library that allows you to easily create error pages for common HTTP error and application exceptions.

How to use


PM> Install-Package Moveax.Mvc.ErrorHandler

ErrorController and two view templates will be added to your project.

Initializing error hander

Add following code to global.asax.cs:

protected void Application_Error(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    var errorHandler = new MvcApplicationErrorHandler(application: this, exception: this.Server.GetLastError()) {
        EnableHttpReturnCodes = false,
        PassThroughHttp401 = false


There are two properties that allow you to configure handler logic.

Adding error pages

Customize ErrorController Default view and/or add new actions and views for other errors. Just combine prefix "Http" with error code. For example:

public ActionResult Http401(ErrorDescription errorDescription)
    return this.View();

Any application exceptions should be processed in Default() action.

You can add logging code etc into HandleError() method that will be invoked for every error.
