Error Handling with PythonPython API

In order to enable developers to programmatically handle errors, when a error occurs the GrabzIt Python API throws a GrabzItException which contains a error code that directly maps to a error. How each error code maps to an error is indicated in the below table, this avoids the need to parse error messages.

An example of a GrabzItException exception using error codes to determine how to handle a error is shown below.

try:
    grabzIt = GrabzItClient.GrabzItClient("Sign in to view your Application Key", "Sign in to view your Application Secret")
    grabzIt.URLToImage("https://www.tesla.com")
    grabzIt.SaveTo("images/result.jpg")
except GrabzItException as e:
    if e.Code == GrabzItException.GrabzItException.PARAMETER_NO_URL:
        # Please enter a URL
