Task Exception handling RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I've been struggling with this problems for a while,,, and need some help to sort things out.

    Using VS 2013 units tests,, I have the following simplified unit test.

            public async WTF()
                Task task;
                    task = Task.Run(
                                    () =>
                                        throw new Exception("Try to catch me");                                   
                    await task;
                catch (AggregateException ex_agg)
                catch (Exception ex_ex)

    I har expected that the line 

    throw new Exception("Try to catch me");	

    would cause a AggregateException to be thrown,, and I could  manage cause of the exception inside the corresponding catch clause.

    Instead a Exception catch is always "activated". "ex_ex" contains no inner exception,, 

    Changing "Enable just my code" makes no difference for the result.

    What am I doing wrong???

  • no the await statement gets the exception out of the aggregated exception for you. chante the await task to

     and you get the aggregatedexception again. Ofcourse you dont want to do. so just handle the exception instead of the aggregated exception
