How to code a try catch?

I am new to programming. I am writing a web site for my fantasy football league using VS 2005 in C#. The website does not display correctly in firefox. IE works great. SO my thought was to use a try catch statement to check the web browser if IE continue on if any other browser then catch and reload website in IE. I am correct in my thinking. If so how would I go about coding this.
Thanks in advance for any help. DL

the try/catch approach is not the right way. First, it is slow, when an exception is produced the program slowly processes the exception.
So, you just have to store the browser type in a session variable and put some IF statements to handle them properly.

As stated a try catch may not be the best method, however I would put it in your backend code to handle any "gotchas"

To create a try catch its simply:

try
{
      // Your code would go here you wish to use.
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
      throw ex;
      // You would have your own exception handling here that would be far better
      // than a rather poor throw
}

Have the try be the first thing in your method.  You can also add a "finally{}" to the try catch.

a website in ASP.NET always works fine with IE, but there are certian things which if corrected will make it work with all other browsers
I will recommend that you should not force the users to only view your website using IE - it might turn away a few users because they dont like using IE for browsing purposes

Just make your site compatiable with all the browsers that will be the ideal solution
