Terminate A Program Immediately From Try Catch?

Jan 19, 2010

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.

'abort' (terminate Immediately) A Form Screen In A Windows Form Application Running Under 'local' Environment?

May 30, 2012

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]

Thrown Custom Exception Is Immediately Caught In The Same Catch Block It Is Thrown From?

May 13, 2012

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.

VS 2008 - Program Starts And Exits Immediately

Dec 6, 2010

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.

Error - Catch Cannot Catch Type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Exception'

Mar 25, 2011

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?

Edit:

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.

Catch Log4net Exceptions / Use Try / Catch Approach

Jan 23, 2012

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.

Run Exe Immediately Of A CD?

Aug 24, 2009

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?

IDE :: Datagridviewcombobox Closes Immediately

Jan 13, 2011

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.

.net - Execute A LINQ-Query Immediately?

Jan 25, 2012

I don't like the verbose way of adding DataRows one by one via Tbl.Rows.Add, so i've created this pseudo LINQ query that does nothing but adding rows implicitely:

Private Function GetData() As DataTable
Dim years = {"2010/2009", "2009/2008", "2008/2007", "2007/2006", "2006/2005", "2005/2004", "2004/2003"}
Dim tbl = New DataTable
tbl.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("Year"))

[code]....

As you can see i don't need the result of the query at all, it's only purpose is to iterate and call DataTable.Rows.Add. So the result is already available in the DataTable itself and not needed from the query.Admittedly this question is somewhat hyphotetical because there would not be a big difference in using f.e. ToList and normally a query's purpose is to return something.But anyway, what's the cheapest way(in terms of memory consumption, execution time) to execute a LINQ query when only the execution and not the result matters?Edit: Ok, thisquestion was a quick-shot and a chicken-and-egg problem. I wanted to reduce 20 lines of code to a single line but noticed that i need some kind of DataSource for the LINQ-Query. Therefor i've created the Array. But at this point i could have simply used a for-each loop as well to add the DataRows.

Conclusion: Use a LINQ-Query for what it's for: a query. Then this question is pointless since there is no cheapest way but only that which returns the correct result.

Immediately Close Form After Saving

May 17, 2012

I have my form checked if it's dirty when a user goes to close it. If its dirty is true, the user is asked if they would like to save the data. When they click yes, the 'save event' is called. The problem I'm having is trying to get the form to completly close after saving. At the end of the save I put in me.close(), but another form closing event is triggered. Is this the correct way to dictate having the form close immediately after saving the data or is there a better way? If it is, I must have it placed in the wrong part of my code. Immediately after the "success" dialog box is displayed, I am asked if I want to save the data again.
