VB.Net: Quitting execution without exiting form

I have a VB.Net application with a deeply embedded routine: about five layers in on the call stack.  If a particular exception occurs at this level, I want to stop execution but keep the form running.  A simple "End" command stops execution and unloads the form; and "Exit Function" takes me out of the offending routine, but it's still operating within a larger loop from which I wish to exit in order to send control back to the form.  I did achieve my objective, creating a ByRef string within my function to provide feedback to the calling program, progressively working to the bottom of the call stack, and exiting cleanly.  I'm looking for an "Exit" command that obviates the need for taking the exotic measures I had to take to dig myself out from the deep hole in which I was.  Does such a command exist?  Thanks, ~Peter Ferber

A "throw" will take you up to the nearest level that catches it.

Indeed, exactly what I needed.  I come from the VBA and VB6 world, and I appreciate learning the nuances of the .Net world.  Thank you.  ~Peter
