EventTopicException not handled by HandleException in ShellApplication

Topics: Exception Handling Application Block
Mar 12, 2012 at 5:06 PM

In my ShellApplication, any unhandled exception in the application is handled by the HandleException method - this allows the app to log the exception and do any clean up.

If the exception is fired in the subscription to a global event, then the exception is wrapped up by the EventBroker and fired as one EventTopicException. This exception is not caught by the overall HandleException method in ShellApplication, event though I have registered to receive all AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledExceptions.

Does anyone know of a way around this?

It sounds like you may be using Prism.  Perhaps the Prism forum can help since it sounds like it may be related to the design and implementation of Prism (e.g. EventBroker).
