throwing exception to application.... .if there's any better way to do it??

i'm writing a class library having following code snippet. i want this class
to report an error (by throwing an Exception) to the application using this
class library. the problem is that within that try block there are several
exceptions that this class itself needs to handle (interrnally). now when
the exception, UserAlreadyRegi stered, is thrown the class' catch block
(within library) catches it and no exception is thrown to the application
further using it.
for this in catch block i have put up another throw instruction if the
exception occured was "UserAlreadyReg istered" in order to pass the exception
to the application.
let me know if there's some better way to do it....and plus what is
"InnerException " supposed to do????

try
{

if (this.IsRegiste red(userInfo.Em ailAddress))
throw new Exception("User AlreadyRegister ed"); // the exception
supposed to be caught by application using this class
// code goes on

}
catch (Exception exp)
{

if (exp.Message==" UserAlreadyRegi stered")
throw exp;
// some exception handler

}
thanks.

Only catch the *types* of exception you really want to handle, and
throw a specific UserAlreadyRegi steredException type. Throwing a bare
Exception is a bad idea - it means you can't easily catch specific
exceptions, as you've found in your own code.

People say that is a bad technique to throw exception from constructors; and that the solution would be to create a function _create_ to initialize an object. What about copy constructors? How can we avoid throwing exceptions? If we already have an abject witch was initialized wit _create_ we will be forced to call create in copy constructor and to throw exceptions from it. Have a nice day,

Hi Folks! I was pondering over a code and noticed that exception handlers were present in the private, protected as well as public methods. And, ofcourse, public methods were calling priv/prot methods internally. My thought was, the exception is being rethrown and propagated by the non-public methods to the public methods, causing performance overhead (stack winding etc). I do agree that, the purpose of throwing the exception by...

I've created a class that offers an enhanced way of handling fatal exceptions. The class allows the user to optionaly submit a http based anonymous error report to myself, and also records details in the application log. The static method is overloaded, and supports passing exceptions and/or strings just like throwing an exception.The class will also fall back to the standard exception handling if something goes wrong in my class.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
