Hi,

In C# there are many exceptions which are used for handling known/unknown scenarioes in our application which are not the expected behaviour.
Ex: In an ATM when we type incorrect PIN which is not an expected flow will raise to exception, this is an known/ predicted bahaviour during design time.

But there might be some exceptions which occurs like: NullReference/DivideByZero etc. errors which happens in our code. If we know those places then we can handle them as below.
http://csharp.net-tutorials.com/advanced/exceptions/

To handle runtime exceptions at application level u can handle it by registering to an event as below:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/dotnet/unhandledexceptions.aspx
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.appdomain.unhandledexception.aspx#Y1414

Usually while coding to avoid application crashes we will put a try catch block at entry point of our application:

static void Main(string[] args)
{
try
{
Control ctrl = new Control();
ctrl.Run();
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
// Display/ Log the error occured using properties in ex.
}
}

This will catch all the exceptions occured in the app without crashing.
Note: It is good to design by analysing all the exceptions which might occur instead of consuming all of them.

You need to use a try catch finally statement:

try
{
//your code here
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
//your exception handing here
//ex.Message is your error
}
finally
{
//any code here to clean up anything that may need to be cleaned up
}
