Gets or sets the unhandled exception.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

Public Property ExceptionObject As Exception

Property Value

Type: System.Exception
The unhandled exception.

This property is read-write in the object model, but your application code would not typically write to it. The property is intended to report the conditions of an error that is raised by Silverlight.

The following example shows how to handle and use the UnhandledException event.

Imports System.IO

Partial Public Class App
    Inherits Application

    Public Sub New()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Application_Startup(ByVal o As Object, _
        ByVal e As StartupEventArgs) Handles Me.Startup

        Me.RootVisual = New Page()

    End Sub

    Private Sub Application_UnhandledException(ByVal sender As Object, _
        ByVal e As ApplicationUnhandledExceptionEventArgs) Handles Me.UnhandledException

        If TypeOf e.ExceptionObject Is FileNotFoundException Then
            ' Inform the user 

            ' Recover from the error 
            e.Handled = True
        End If

        ' Exception is unrecoverable so stop the application and allow the 
        ' Silverlight plug-in control to detect and process the exception. 

    End Sub

End Class
