Namespace:  System.Linq.Expressions
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

Syntax

Public Shared Function Throw ( _
    value As Expression _
) As UnaryExpression
public static UnaryExpression Throw(
    Expression value
)

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System.Linq.Expressions.UnaryExpression
A UnaryExpression that represents the exception.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create a TryExpression object that uses the Throw method.

' Add the following directive to the file:
' Imports System.Linq.Expressions 

' A TryExpression object that has a Catch statement.
' The return types of the Try block and all Catch blocks must be the same.
Dim tryCatchExpr As TryExpression =
       Expression.TryCatch(
           Expression.Block(
               Expression.Throw(Expression.Constant(New DivideByZeroException())),
               Expression.Constant("Try block")
           ),
           Expression.Catch(
               GetType(DivideByZeroException),
               Expression.Constant("Catch block")
           )
       )

' The following statement first creates an expression tree,
' then compiles it, and then runs it.
' If the exception is caught, 
' the result of the TryExpression is the last statement 
' of the corresponding Catch statement.
outputBlock.Text &= Expression.Lambda(Of Func(Of String))(tryCatchExpr).Compile()() & vbCrLf

' This code example produces the following output:
'
' Catch block
// Add the following directive to the file:
// using System.Linq.Expressions;  

// A TryExpression object that has a Catch statement.
// The return types of the Try block and all Catch blocks must be the same.
TryExpression tryCatchExpr =
    Expression.TryCatch(
        Expression.Block(
            Expression.Throw(Expression.Constant(new DivideByZeroException())),
            Expression.Constant("Try block")
        ),
        Expression.Catch(
            typeof(DivideByZeroException),
            Expression.Constant("Catch block")
        )
    );

// The following statement first creates an expression tree,
// then compiles it, and then runs it.
// If the exception is caught, 
// the result of the TryExpression is the last statement 
// of the corresponding Catch statement.
outputBlock.Text += Expression.Lambda<Func<string>>(tryCatchExpr).Compile()() + "\n";

// This code example produces the following output:
//
// Catch block
