I too would like to add a cool little thingie in VB.Net after reading Rachel's post.
One of the coolest exception handling features (which I could not find in C# BTW) is catching exceptions only on certain conditions. So I can basically write:Private Sub Button1_Click(By Val sender As System.Object, By Val e As System.Events) Handles Button.Click Try 'my bad code here Catch ex As Exception When false 'we will never get here
End TryEnd Sub
How cool is that? And does anyone know the equivalent to this in C#?
For some reason - some exceptions are never caught by my error handler. Division by zero for example. Take a look at this code:Try Dim x As Integer = CInt(Textbooks.Text) 'x is zero MsgBox(x / x) Catch ex As Exception 'we never get here! 'whaaa? Me.Text = ex.Message End Try
I'm sure it's probably a setting somewhere in VS, but I can't seem to find it. :( Sometimes it's the simplest things that drive you crazy...
