How can I output details of any Unhandled Exceptions that are encountered to my log file?

Hi Experts,

How can I output details of any Unhandled Exceptions that are encountered to my log file?
I assume this can be done via one block of code in my application.

Ordinarily it would depend on your application. It's often better to catch all of your exceptions in one layer so you can take appropriate actions. For example, our applications have a "user" layer and then a core layer. Our core handles catching all of the exceptions that occur so that we can log appropriately. If you don't have your project set up in an n-tier fashion, then you might try using the UnhandledExceptionEvent for this purpose.
