Screenshot showing bug

for both Android/iOS, these app types don’t respect the settings specified in the Exception Settings.  For example, the below screenshot shows that I have changed the CLR exceptions so that it should only break for the Microsoft.Jscript.JScriptException.  However, it actually continues to break for all CLR exceptions – notice in the screenshot that the exception dialog opened for the MobileServiceInvalidOperationException even though it’s not selected in the exception settings.

Here are the repro steps:

a.       Use the MyDriving app (https://github.com/Azure-Samples/MyDriving/tree/master/src/MobileApps/MyDriving) – run either Android or iOS.

b.       In the Exception Settings window in VS (ctrl+alt+e), choose to only break on the JScriptException.

c.       Run the app and on the current trip screen; start a recording, choose the simulator, and then stop the recording.  At this point,  you will see the exception dialog open so that it breaks on the MobileServiceInvalidOperationException.  Instead, we shouldn’t break on this exception at all.  If you continue to run the app, you’ll notice that it breaks on all CLR exceptions even though only one specific one was selected.
