UnhandledException Event

Dispatcher.UnhandledException Event

Occurs when a thread exception is thrown and uncaught during execution of a delegate by way of Invoke or BeginInvoke.

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

public event DispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventHandler UnhandledException

This event is raised when an exception that was thrown during execution of a delegate by way of Invoke or BeginInvoke is uncaught.

A handler can mark the exception as handled, which will prevent the internal exception handler from being called.

Event handlers for this event must be written with care to avoid creating secondary exceptions and to catch any that occur. It is recommended to avoid allocating memory or doing any resource intensive operations in the handler.

The UnhandledExceptionFilter event provides a means to not raise the UnhandledException event. The UnhandledExceptionFilter event is raised first, and If RequestCatch on the DispatcherUnhandledExceptionFilterEventArgs is set to false, the UnhandledException event will not be raised.
