Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-01-16 13:41:24 UTC
It would be nice to have "just my code" support for catchpoints - so catchpoints are ignored if there are no user code frames between the throw and the catch. This would prevent users getting confused about internally handled exceptions in Mono.

Zoltan, how difficult would this be?
Comment 2 Zoltan Varga 2013-01-16 14:28:31 UTC
Its doable. Wouldn't it be easier for md to just check whenever the exception was caught in user code, and continue otherwise ?
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2014-06-11 16:04:25 UTC
how do we check if it is caught in user code?
Comment 4 Zoltan Varga 2014-06-11 16:52:28 UTC
md has functionality to check whenever an assembly is 'just my code' or not, that needs to be applied to the method on top of the stack.
