Error handling in vb. net

Hi all

I'am moving from Visual Foxpro and have a question
regarding "best practice" error handling in vb .net.
In VFP I have always used a "central" error handling
object in order to have a easy and reusable way of
handling all errors in a program.

The VB 6 coding examples I have seen there has always
been error handling code in each program module.

Is it possible in VB .net to use a central error handling
or is it not a "good way" of handling errors?

Hi Stefan,

Try reading up on the:

Try
Catch
End Try

... method for error handling. I find it to be very easy to implement
and you can plop it pretty much anywhere you need to. I find this easier to
implement than trying to put everything into a centralized error handler
myself, but that's just personal preference I guess. Not really sure if
there is an advantage to one way versus another.

Hi Stefan,

In addition to Brian, look also for "finally" .

Try
Just do what you want to do
Catch spEx as (a specialExceptio n)
DoSomething (by instance show a messagebox and do an action)
Catch Ex as Exception (you can real put those two ore more behind each
other)
(that catch every exception was not a special exception)
DoSomething (by instance show a messagebox and do an action)
Finally
(That is always done, it is very handy to close something )
End Try

In VB.NET, there are 2 error handling methods available: Structured
exception handling with 'Try...Catch' and unstructured error handling
with 'On Error GoTo...'. Have a look at the documentation for more
information on this topic.

When creating a new class, is it encouraged to always include error handling routines within your LET and GET procedures? It's seems that most text books never seem to include much about error handling within classes. Just hoping to hear some programmer's thoughts on error handling.

Hi, assert and error handling can be used for similar purposes. When should one use assert instead of try/catch and in which cases the error handling is preferable? I've read somewhere that assert could be used to start an interactive debugger automatically. How do I realize that on a Linux machine using gcc?

I use code extensively; I probably overuse it. But I've been using error trapping very sparingly, and now I've been trapped by that. A form that works for me on the system I'm using, apparently runs into problems on the system where it will actually be used, and since I used so little error-trapping it dies very ungracefully. I will of course try to fix whatever is causing the error and add error-trapping to the functions where the...

Everyone knows that global variables get re-set in an mdb when an un-handled error is encountered, but it seems that this also happens when the variable is defined as private at form-level. So if "global variables get re-set" doesn't tell the whole story, then what does? ***please note*** I'm not looking for a solution - I'm looking for a more detailed description of what happens when an un-handled error occurs - possibly with help file...

Hi, I have error handling in place throughout my application. I also start the application wrapped in error handling code to catch any unexpected exceptions (i.e. exceptions that occur where I haven't placed error handling code). When I run my app from the IDE, the unhandled errors are caught by the error handling code in my Sub Main routine and the error details are logged to a text file and optionally e-mailed to me for follow-up.
