[.net] Custom exception window for "uncatched" exceptions?

Recommended Posts

Hi! Is there a way to globally catch and display all uncatched (unexpected) exceptions, and display them in a custom window instead of the built-in one? Thanks for the answers! ;)

In a Windows Forms app, you should hook up to the Application.ThreadException event. There's also the AppDomain.UnhandledException event.


thanks! and how can i disable the built-in exception message window?

wrapping Main in a try-catch block with Exception e should do it. There's probably a better way tough.

Just be careful not to crash in your exception handler, or you could lose the original exception information.

I once had this happen, because I was accidentally disposing the windows forms default font.
