This article will help beginners. Handling exceptions finding


This article mainly focus on how to find handled exceptions. While debugging code, we easily find unhandled exceptions. But how to find handled exceptions, please look at below steps


In order to understand this article basic knowledge of C# & VS. For demo purpose i am using console application.

Creating Simple Console Application.

Go to File New-> Project, it will display window , form  that window left side templates Select Visula C#, and then come to right side select Console Application. It will create one static main method. Please refer below code

Block of code should be set style as "Code" like below.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace HandlingExceptionsDebugging
class Program
static void Main(string[] args)


By default visual studio will create this code.

Now create two methods. Please refer below code.

public void UnhandledException()
throw new Exception("Unhandled Exception");

public void HandledException()
throw new Exception("Exception throwing");
catch (Exception)

These two methods are very simple. one is unhandled exception method, second one is handling exception.
Now go to  Main method, create Program object, and call these tow methods. Press F5 button.

Please look at below code

        static void Main(string[] args)
Program p = new Program();

HandledException method also throwing exception but, it won't notify. Directly cursor (Exception occur) UnhandledException method.

Question is how we will find Handled Exceptions?

Go to Debug menu->Select Exception menu item it will display pop up window, Select all checkboxes below Thrown.

Please refer below screen

now run application press(F5) . now we are able to find handled exceptions also.  Cursor will stops HandledException method also.

Hope this article will useful for beginners.
