Response.End() in C# throw a ThreadAbortException

I used to be able to use the Response.End (JScript in the non-.NET world) without causing any exception.

However, these days I just moved to .NET and I am using C#.  According to some MS document, the Response.End() calls Thread.Abort which in turn causes the ThreadAbortException to appear.  As a result, the following code returns me "Thread was being aborted" exception.

try {
   if (certain condition is not met) {
      Response.Write("xxxx");
      Response.End();
   }
   ...
   ...
}
catch (Exception f) {
   Response.Write(f.Message);
}

Is there a way for me to use Response.End() to end the execution of the current page and also include this Response.End() within a try/catch block without causing an exception to occur.  

My main goal is to terminate execution of the page without causing an exception.

don't use Response.End()... if your logic in the page is correct, you won't need it. it's a bad habit to get into.

also, get away from Response.Write(), instead, set the text property of a label, or something similar.

think OO, not script

Keep using Response.End() by catch the error :o)

try {
   if (certain condition is not met) {
      Response.Write("xxxx");
      Response.End();
   }
   ...
   ...
}
catch (System.Threading.ThreadAbortException e) {
   // let this blank
}
catch (Exception f) {
   Response.Write(f.Message);
}

Hope this helps

isn't that a little redundant? if you get an exception, handle it. make sure your methods are not executing anything else after an exception is caught.

Response.End is a bad habit, and not a very good practice.

Hi there,

Generally speaking, you may catch the exceptions that you threw (or couldn't catch) in the Application_Error method of global.asax, and that would be a very nice idea to use that not to show the end user meaningless error message.

Also in your case, you may detect whether the exception is of type ThreadAbortException in this method and act accordingly.

Hope this helps,
