C#: How to ignore an exception and continue processing

Hi,
I am building a web application in which I have a method that processes information that I get from a text file. If I encounter an error, the method stops. I would like to process the data in the file until the end, whatever error I encounter in the way. For that I would like a mechanism that allows me to put the error I encouter in a String variable and then read that string when I get done processing all the file. How can I do that.

how are you reading your data
if its in a loop then
while (true)
{
   try
   {
       //processing code here
    }
    catch (Exception Ex)
    {
        //process the exception here
        continue;
     }
}

In your process code, add a try...catch block and append all exceptions to a string.
StringBuilder errors = new StringBuilder();
// begin of your process
while(...)
{
    try
    {
        // your code here
    }
    catch(Exception ex)
    {
        errors.AppendFormat("{0};", ex.Message);
    }
}
 
// read all errors using errors.ToString();

The trick with a try/catch block is that you jump all the way to the catch.  If you want to continue processing, a large try block around everything probably won't do what you want.  You need several try catch blocks, one wrapping each exception that could be thrown at a very fine level.

That will be a big "NO NO". Whenever your application tells you there is an error, you better handle it first. The only exception is that the "error" is what you already expect and you are very sure that you can igore it without causing any problems.

Actually I have many errors already handled to that point that any other error should not be allowed to stop the execution. That's why I want to catch them apart and then examine them at a latter time. I found the solution of tiagoSalgado viable except that I don't see how I will recuperate the content of the StringBuilder since it is in a method wich returns other ting than String.

In that case you can use a out parameter in your function
 

public string YourFunction(string param1, out string error)
{
    try
    {
        ...
    }
    catch( ... )
    {
        error += "your error";
    }
}
 
And call your function like this
 
string myerror;
YourFunction("your_parameter", myerror);
Console.Write(error);

It might be worth organising your errors into a collection, and even tag them with the line number the error happened on.

Maybe by creating an Error class (with Line and Message properties) and returning a List<Error> collection as a parameter.
