I am trying to end a program immediately when a critical exception is caught. But I am finding that code after my Try/Catch block is executing even though the code withing the Catch block is executing, and that Catch code is calling Me.Close.
I suspect it has something to do with background .net threads or something, but I have no clue how to deal with those kinds of issues. How can I stop the program as quickly as possible? If code after my Catch executes, it will (and does) throw lots of uncaught exceptions later. Currently, it is not feasible for me to try to catch all the other exceptions. I just want to report an error and end the program.In my form load routine, I create and set up a number of objects and arrays by calling various subroutines.The success of most of the subroutines depends on the sucess of three subs in particular, which are called early on. If one of those three fails, there will undoubtedly be a number of hard to trap exceptions later on in the load routine.
FormA calls DialogB where user cancels DialogB which exits via ForceTermination(), see insert.Caller FormA check for DialogResult not = OK, which it isn't, and I can see this in debug as Abort(3).However, the code continues merrily along its way until I get a 'null reference' error which I'm trying to avoid via Force Termination().This is caused by the user cancelling DialogB, a selection process to get a database (SQL) instance.[code]
This may be a debugger issue, but here goes:I have this piece of code:
Private Function Connect() As Boolean Try sessionBegun = False[code].....
My intention is to 'convert' the low level exception into something more meaningful, so I throw an exception of my own creation. I want this to bubble up to a place where I can handle it.However what is happening is my debugger breaks and tells me that an exception of type "QuickBooksConnectionException" was thrown.I know that, I just threw it, why are you catching it? From what I've read, this ought to work, and there doesn't appear to be an analogous Java throws keyword, so perhaps it is my debugger.
I copied a project I wrote on my XP machine to my other computer with Windows 7 64-bit. When I run it through VS2008 it exits immediately. It does not run a single line of code. The exit code is 0. I need to post what else it says. But I did find a posting about this saying the path to the temp files may be wrong for it but he did not know how to change this. If I create a new peoject and put a command button on it, the program runs. So I was wondering if it is something like the temp files or something else. The machine runs a compiled .exe of the program from the XP machone when installed on the Windows 7 machine. So I do not think it is the program not being compatible.
I have just started a simple project in VB 2008 express (having previous experience (not much though) in VB6). At the moment I have only 1 form and when I click on the red x close button the form closes but the process is still running in task manager. I have the following code which I assumed would exit the program and terminate the process but it doesnt seem to work[code]...
I have a VB program that displays a PDF file. When the program is closed it takes 30 seconds or so before AcroRd32 process releases the PDF file. In certain circumstances if the program is restarted with in this period, the PDF file does not display. The specific circumstances is that I have a second program (re)starting the program that displays the PDF file.
a) Make the PDF file be immediately released when my program closes
b) When the PDF file is loaded test that it properly loaded so that it can be reloaded if necessary.
I have just built a full main menu for my pc game and need to terminate the running program using a button held within the form. I have built a button labeled exit and tried a couple of closing codes such as: Me.Close ExitApplication
when i attempt to debug a program in visual basic studio 08 the black screen dissapears immediatly and i cannot read anything that appears. not sure if it is an option or a bug, but it makes the system relatively useless.
Is there a way to catch ALL errors of the program?
Purpose: The idea is to catch all the errors of the program, load errorform which basically just says "A Error Was Detected" (Which I have already designed). Then send a web request to a formmail.php file with the said error (which i have already done).
In short: I need a way to catch ALL errors, and get the error string that it gave.
While running an application in the IDE, the program properly handles Try/Catch/End Try blocks. This works fine for the most part, but is it possible to have errors generated in these blocks stop execution at the line with an error on encountering an error?
Is it possible to intercept any program write (to file/registry) commands and prompt the user to allow, while pausing the other program's command? Antivirus thing. I know, this seems impossible. But there must be a way! Even if it's just possible to notice what's happening and save another copy of the to-be-affected file first...
i need a way to be sure that one of my programs ALLWAYS receives data from a handheld scanner. The logic to process the recieved data is already in place. I need to be sure to receive the data from a certain usb-port at all times.
I have a program in VB.Net that receives mails from Outlook, extracts attachments and inserts the attachments into a table through a query. I would like to put the query/queries in a Try/Catch block, but cannot do so as Outlook exceptions cannot be caught, and it gives me an error, and unless I put a very specific exception, I cannot catch it. Is there a workaround?
Try Catch ex As Exception End Try
Exception is underlined and when I hover on it, it says: "Catch cannot catch type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Exception' because it is not in 'System.Exception' or a class that inherits from 'System.Exception'". This is affecting all my other code which I'd like to put into a Try/Catch block.
The following code causes a "Warning" that Variable is used before value assigned.How do I restructure this Try/catch to eliminate error on the myreader.close command in the Catch part? Code appears to work fine but I dont like Warnings. [code]
i have problem when i click a ADD button, there is one null value in the textbox .. so the try catch statemnt is to catch that null value error but after that the catch is success but the button click never stop excute the statemnt till the end of the button event.
I have this scenario: in a Sub I have a Try...Catch statement.Within that Try..Catch I call another sub.In that 2nd sub is also a Try...Catch.(see below for example).Now if an exception occurs in the 2nd sub's Try...Catch, which Catch gets excecuted? The 2nd one, the 1st one or both?
I need to catch log4net exceptions (its own exceptions not app exceptions logged by it). I wish there's a way of doing it this way: [code] I have this code implemented and there's no errors in compilation but i force log4net to have an error (pointing to a non existing database in the config file) and nothing is threw.I've tried the listener aproach: [code] and it's writing the errors to log4net.txt, the forced ones i mean.This last aproach has a couple of drawbacks: it won't append every error to the file, if the error is the same it doesn't write it, i can't get the listener to write every error to that file, only one (I don't know how to fully configure the trace listener, it might be that). Thus it won't append the date and hour to every line wich is a necesity for me. Finally i can't give structure to it (xml). Even if the listener work i need to use the try/catch aproach, since i'm using ExceptionHandling from Enterprise library to log the errors in my app.
I am using VB.NET 2005 to create a Windows forms application. I have a procedure named SendMail that creates an instance of Outlook.Application, to send an email from my application. I found the code on this forum, I think.The procedure works fine, but I can't use error handling with it.I call the procedure from a button click event. I put the procedure call in a try/catch block, and the application won't build, with the following error.
Error 68 'Catch' cannot catch type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Exception' because it is not 'System.Exception' or a class that inherits from 'System.Exception'. C:datadevdmtiQTSQTSv7_1_20100212wQTSQTSReportsCriteria pt_frmReportViewer.vb 43 21 QTS
Here is the code:

i have a try catch set up in my program and a message box that comes after the "End Try". when the message box pops up when an exception is thrown right after the second message box shows how do i stop this from happening?
I have had absolutely no prior experience in any programming whatsoever. Yesterday I downloaded the visual basic 2008 express edition from Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition.
I have a small question which I am sure is very easy for somebody else to answer and I apologise in advance if this question is in the wrong section.
I wanted to make a small exe to autorun from a cd. I want to be able to hand the cd out to friends and family. So far I have achieved what I wanted with the little app. On the cd I have an exe file in a particular folder that when clicking a command button on a windows form - I would like to run this exe. At the moment I have:
Private Sub Button5_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button5.Click Shell("explorer.exe ..appfolderapplication.exe") End Sub
This finds and selects the application as required, however It does not run it. Another box comes asking me "Do you want to run or save this file?" If I click run, another box comes up "The Publisher could not be verified, are you sure you want to run this application?"
what code to I need to enter or change to make this exe run immediately as if I were the same as browsing for it and double clicking on it?
I have an issue with VS 2008 datagridview combobox control.
The combo box in question closes immediately after the CellValidation method that I wrote invalidates the input in the combo box cell. What I mean by closes immediately is that when the drop down arrow is left-clicked, once I remove my finger from the left clicking of the mouse instead of staying down so that the user can see the selection options the combo box just closes.
I'm currently using EditOnEnter as my EditMode style. (I've tried switching between the different option the same behavior exists). The datagridview is bound to a dataset which was created from my database in MS Sql Server 2005.
This problem exists on two different forms and occurs exactly the same way. I don't know what other settings to mention to help in the troubleshooting of this error, but please feel free to ask me any questions so that I may resolve this issue. By the way both forms use datagridviews tied to the same dataset, just different tables and table adapters.
Can anyone tell me how to kill a thread immediately.
I have tried MyThread.Abort, but it seems to do nothing. Someone told me it's because 'Abort' waits for the current operation to complete, but my thread will run for over 30 minutes before that happens.
I'm currently practicing working on mobile application using vb .net 2008. So I have these 5 forms that I link together. The form # 2 is where my quit button was positioned. I want to quit the whole application but form # 2 was the only form that is terminated while the rest of the forms was not.
I'm getting 'Catch' cannot catch type 'Object' because it is not 'System.Exception' or a class that inherits from 'System.Exception'. and 'Expression detected' Code underlined in blue: Catch obj1 As Object When (?)
