Try/Catch/Finally question. Somewhat short on time.

just a quick question about   Try/Catch/Finally   blocks.

Lets say I have a bool function I'm writing.

try
{
   //some code
}
catch (Exception)
{
   return false;
}
finally
{
  //some code
}
return true;


if an exception occurs in the try block, will the finally block still execute? or does the return statement immediately leave the function?

Finally code is executed.

You can check it withs this code:

    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            func();
            Console.Read();
        }

        public static bool func()
        {
            try
            {
                Console.WriteLine("try");
                Int32.Parse("jjjj");
            }
            catch (Exception)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("catch");
                return false;
            }
            finally
            {
                Console.WriteLine("finally");
            }
            return true;
        }
    }

Yes your finally is executed, however you wouldnt loop back to re-do what failed in the try block.  

It is really just for catching and dealing with your exceptions
