C# Equivalent to VB6 Error Handling
VB allows VB6-style error handling for compatibility purposes. Some elements of VB6 error handling can be converted to try/catch blocks. Items that cannot be converted and must be addressed via refactoring are: On Error Resume Next, Resume, Resume Next, On Error GoTo -1, and references to the Err object.
For the simplest case, the conversion is trivial:
VB (with VB6 error handling):
Public Sub ErrorHandlingExample()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
'... <main logic>
'... <error handling code>
public void ErrorHandlingExample()
// On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
//... <main logic>
//... <error handling code>
