Response.Redirect within Try Catch


I am using 2.0 and I have a page where I need to use the Try-Catch-Finally structure.

Within the Try statement I have various commands and then at the end of it I have a Response.Redirect("....") to take the user to another page.

Within my catch statement I also have a Response.Redirect("../errorPage.htm") which will take you to the error page if any exceptions occur.

However, I have tested the page and I know there are no exceptions happening but the user is still getting redirected to the error page.  Is there anyway to make this not happen?

I am using Smart Navigation, if this helps build a picture.

Could anyone please help with this?  It would be very much appreachiated.

How do you know that no exception is happening and can you show the code you have in the try and catch block and tell us at what point during page processing the try catch block appears?

Response.Redirect will throw a "Thread was being aborted" Exception. This is by design. So when you use the code like below:

        catch(Exception ex)

The first Response.Redirect will throw an exception and then turn to the "catch" mode.

Just as I thought. An exception was being thrown! I just had no idea that Response.Redirect was causing it  Surprise [:O]

Good info to know zhuhua1006.

I got it working by doing Response.Redirect("default.aspx", False).

it now works properly.

It would really be interesting to know why, by default, the endResponse property is true since this will always throw an exception...right?  Doesn't this kill performance if you use Response.Redirect many times in an application from a .NET CLR Exception counter perspective?

We have an application in this scenario and have to change hundreds of calls to add the false overload since performance was being degraded so badly due to ThreadAbortExceptions alone.

Thanks for any input!

Try catch in web form
Hi I have a try catch in a (web form) I want to implement a finally and in this check if there are any exceptions thrown .. if yes I have to do some processing in the finally block.  My question is how can I check in Finally if there are any exceptions been thrown at all .

Try catch, Response.Redirect, and endResponse
 Hi,I get an error email from this aspx page once a while. I have pasted the code skeleton below. The error email says the error occured at the line marked *, where sproc1 is being called. When I look up the database table, I see the sproc2 has been executed as well. I created a test page and changing the endResponse parameter to true or false did not make any difference, when an exception occurs the execution always jumps straight to the catch block. I wish the same thing was happening in the production page as well, but the sproc2 is always being called.try{    .....&nb...
