Unhandled exception ... and continue?

I added Application_DispatcherUnhandledException to my code, and it's working nicely. I put "divide by zero" error in my application, ran it, and lo and behold the code in this method was executed.

So far so good, but ... I added a "CanContinueAfterError" property to my Application, which can be set to either False or True. You catch my drift. If it's False, the Application_DispatcherUnhandledException should log the error and exit gracefully. And it does. Happy days.

But when I set the property to True, it should show a slightly different message, set e.Handled to True, and then continue .... ?

Well, I set e.Handled to True, I can step through it going to the end of the Sub, but after that, nothing. It doesn't return to the code that triggered the error, nothin'.

What am I doing wrong?

Suggestions preferably in VB.NET

Cheers

That event lets you display custom error messages, custom logging and the likes. But it won't let you go back automatically to the point where the error occurred.

Setting e.Handled to True does not bring you back to the point where the error occurred. It simply tells the system not to terminate the application.

It is up to you to make a call somewhere in your application so that it still goes on.

Yup. I realised that it exits the procedure it's currently running. That's good enough for me.
