Using Multiple Catch Statements in VB.net

You also can use multiple Catch statements when you filter exceptions. Here's an example that specifically handles overflow, invalid argument, and argument out of range exceptions:

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim int1 = 0, int2 = 1, int3 As Integer
        Try
            int3 = int2 / int1
            System.Console.WriteLine("The answer is {0}", int3)
        Catch e As System.OverflowException
            System.Console.WriteLine("Exception: Arithmetic overflow!")
        Catch e As System.ArgumentException
            System.Console.WriteLine("Exception: Invalid argument value!")
        Catch e As System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException
            System.Console.WriteLine("Exception: Argument out of range!")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Module

If you want to add a general exception handler to catch any exceptions not filtered, you can add a Catch block for the Exception class at the end of the other Catch blocks:

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim int1 = 0, int2 = 1, int3 As Integer
        Try
            int3 = int2 / int1
            System.Console.WriteLine("The answer is {0}", int3)
        Catch e As System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException
            System.Console.WriteLine("Exception: Argument out of range!")
        Catch e As System.ArgumentException
            System.Console.WriteLine("Exception: Invalid argument value!")
        Catch e As Exception
            System.Console.WriteLine("Exception occurred!")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Module
