    if (alwaysShow)
        ExceptionMessageBox box = new ExceptionMessageBox(exTop);
        box.ShowCheckBox = true;
        box.IsCheckBoxChecked = true;
        box.CheckBoxText = "Always show this message";

        // Set the global variable.
        alwaysShow = box.IsCheckBoxChecked;
    ' Do something that may cause an exception.
    Throw New ApplicationException("An error has occured.")
Catch ex As ApplicationException
    Dim str As String = "The action failed."
    Dim exTop As ApplicationException = New ApplicationException(str, ex)
    exTop.Source = Me.Text

    ' Show a message box if the global variable is true.
    If alwaysShow Then
        Dim box As ExceptionMessageBox = New ExceptionMessageBox(exTop)
        box.ShowCheckBox = True
        box.IsCheckBoxChecked = True
        box.CheckBoxText = "Always show this message"

        ' Set the global variable.
        alwaysShow = box.IsCheckBoxChecked
    End If
