Expression.TryCatchFinally Method

Creates a TryExpression representing a try block with any number of catch statements and a finally block.

Namespace:  System.Linq.Expressions
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public static TryExpression TryCatchFinally(
	Expression body,
	Expression finally,
	params CatchBlock[] handlers


Type: System.Linq.Expressions.Expression
The body of the try block.
Type: System.Linq.Expressions.Expression
The body of the finally block.
Type: System.Linq.Expressions.CatchBlock[]
The array of zero or more CatchBlock expressions representing the catch statements to be associated with the try block.

The following example demonstrates how to create a TryExpression object that contains a catch statement and a finally statement.

// Add the following directive to the file.
// using System.Linq.Expressions;  

// A TryExpression object that has a catch statement and a finally statement.
// The return types of the try block and all catch blocks must be the same.
TryExpression tryCatchExpr =
            Expression.Throw(Expression.Constant(new DivideByZeroException())),
            Expression.Constant("Try block")
        Expression.Call(typeof(Console).GetMethod("WriteLine", new Type[] { typeof(string) }), Expression.Constant("Finally block")),
            Expression.Constant("Catch block")

// The following statement first creates an expression tree,
// then compiles it, and then runs it.
// If the exception is caught, 
// the result of the TryExpression is the last statement 
// of the corresponding catch statement.
outputBlock.Text += Expression.Lambda<Func<string>>(tryCatchExpr).Compile()() + "\n";

// This code example produces the following output:
// Finally block
// Catch block
