I'm working with VC 5.0 and looking for a command to trap error.  Is there a command which calls a function when an error is encountered ?

I'm looking for something similar to ON ERROR in Visual Basic.

Use try and catch blocks (exception handling).

Example:

CMyDaoRecordset myset;
try { myset.Open(); }
catch ( CDaoExeception* e) { e->Delete(); MessageBox(...); }

See help on each MFC function. You will discover which exception
are thrown on each one of them.

This my code and I try to handle the devided by 0 exception:
try
{
    double a;
    a = a / 0;
}
catch(...)
{
  int i;
  i = 1;
}

If I understand well,  while executing the line "a = a / 0;", the program should go to the catch procedure and associate value 1 to i.  Why it never goes to the catch procedure ?
What's wrong with my code ?

Thanks

Replace:

a = a / b;

with:

if (!b) throw 0;
a = a / b;

An exception can be caused only by using throw keyword.
