I know that i cannot divide by zero. But i thought that the try catch would take care of this. Why am i getting this error?

I still wondered why you are getting error at that point, if catch block is used then if any occurs any where the control has to go in catch block..

I tried bellow code but it works for me..

Dim d As Decimal = 0
        Dim rrr As Decimal = 0
        Dim k As Decimal = 0

        Try
            d = rrr / GetIntVal(k)
            d = (k - rrr) / k
        Catch
        End Try

Open in new window


May be you can use specific exception as bellow;

Catch exc As DivideByZeroException

On the main menu click on the Debug -> Exceptions... and in the new window that opens click on the + sign next to Common Language RunTime Exceptions. Now click on the + sign next to System. Now find the exception System.DivideByZeroException and if there is a check mark in the CheckBox to the right click on it to remove it. Then click on the OK button on the lower right side of the window. This is the only thing I know that Will cause that behavior.

That got it. Thrown was checked on Common Language Runtime Exceptions. So everything under it was checked. I unchecked it there and now i am not throwing the exception any more. But do i need to worry about this being an error once I compile my application?

Those exceptions are for the IDE environment only. If you were to take out the Try/Catch block you will see that it will throw the exception because it is not being caught by the Catch block.
