Error Handler

How would you handle:
99999 +99999 = 'System.OverflowException'
' 9 divide 0' = infinity
99 * 999 = 'System.OverflowException'
32000 - -768 = you will get an exception

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You decide how to handle each of those errors using "Try...Catch" blocks:

dim i as int16
     i = 99999 +99999
catch ex as System.OverflowException
     'Inside the Catch Block, you put code that you want to execute if something goes wrong.  Here, we're capturing only an OverflowException.
     i = nothing
     messagebox.Show("Sorry, I can't add that hight.")
catch genEx as System.Exception
     'Here, I'm catching any other exceptions that may have occured other than the OverflowException
      i = nothing"An error occurred." & vbCrLf & genEx.message)
end Try
