Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Debugging exceptions, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 06 Debug and Troubleshoot Code.
- Debugging code and dealing with exceptions…are two similar tasks.…In many cases, it is an unhandled error in our code…that leads us to a debugging session.…In this video, I'll show the Exception Assistant,…which helps you investigate unhandled exceptions…and fix the problem before you release the application.…I'll also look at the exception break settings,…and show you how to override the defaults in Visual Studio.…The solution I have contains two projects,…it has an ASP.NET web application,…and it has a WPF Windows application.…
Both of them have code that will cause an exception.…I do not have any error handling code…in my application, so that will lead…to an unhandled exception.…On line 33, I'm instantiating a variable…of type List of string,…then on line 34 I'm adding a string,…which is the name of the book,…and then on line 36, I'm attempting to access…one of the items out of the list,…but I'm using the number 5,…and there are not five items in this list,…so I'll get an ArgumentOutOfRangeException.…To simulate what the user would see,…
