Hi,

How can I throw an exception I define in java? I would like something like:

    int GetIndex(int nIndex)
    {

        if (nIndex > list.GetCount()) {
             throw ?;
        }
    }

    void Something()
    {
         try {
             list.GetIndex(88888);
         }
         catch (?) {
              print('bad index sadly.");
         }
    }

yeah that's just pseudocode,

Thanks

   int GetIndex(int nIndex) throws Exception
    {

        if (nIndex > list.GetCount()) {
             throw new Exception("bad index sadly.");
        }
    }

    void Something()
    {
         try {
             list.GetIndex(88888);
         }
         catch (Exception e) {
              e.printStackTrace()
              print(e.getMessage());
         }
    }

Assuming you have defined your exception class, you need to declare it to be thrown by the method:

int GetIndex(int nIndex) throws MyExceptionSubclass
{

        if (nIndex > list.GetCount()) {
             throw new MyExceptionSubclass("Index out of range");
        }
}

In that case, though, you would normally allow the runtime to throw an exception for those reasons
