I'd like to be able to use the exception handling block to retry an operation. Here's the sort of code I have:
DoOperation(); // can fail at runtime
catch (Exception ex)
bool rethrow = ExceptionPolicy.HandleException(ex, "RetryOption");
In my exception handler, I'd like to log the exception and offer the user a dialog box with a "Retry" button that can be used to retry the operation.
Is there a nice way to do this using the Exception Handling Block? There doesn't seem to be a way to return any information from the HandleException method other than the rethrow flag.
Not the Exception Handling Application Block, but a new
Transient Fault Handling Application Block.
It provides an extensible collection of retry strategies including:
- Fixed interval
- Exponential back-off
It also includes a collection of error detection strategies for cloud-based services.
