Issue w/ Async Exception Propagation

I have a rather large workflow and smack dab in the middle of it, I have a parallel activity that kicks off several custom AsyncCodeActivity's. I've encountered instances though where if an exception was thrown within the async work, the exception isn't caught by the surrounding TryCatch activity and my entire workflow fails.
To illustrate, I've put together a simple example and I'm hoping you can either tell me what I'm doing wrong or if this is the intended behavior. The example is in two parts. The first is a simple AsyncCodeActivity called AsyncTest. The second is a dynamic workflow making use of it and illustrates what I've described.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Activities;
namespace AsyncTeseter
 public sealed class AsyncTest : AsyncCodeActivity<string>
  public InArgument<string> Name { get; set; }
  protected override IAsyncResult BeginExecute(AsyncCodeActivityContext context, AsyncCallback callback, object state)
   var func = new Func<string, string>(s => { throw new Exception("Oh noes!"); });
   var asyncResult = func.BeginInvoke(Name.Get(context), callback, state);
   context.UserState = func;
   return asyncResult;
  protected override string EndExecute(


Every self-respected programmer should include exception handling techniques. Sometimes your application will generate an error. Regardless of who was responsible for this error, the programmer or the user, it is up to the first to include the necessary exception handling techniques to keep his/her program from crashing. The .Net environment provides useful techniques for avoiding disastrous errors such as try-catch statements and user-defined exceptions.

Global Exception Handling with ASP.NET

After your global exception handler has done its work, you'll want to redirect the users of your website to a friendly page that tells them that something has gone wrong, and then provide them with customer support information as well as a link back to your web application's home page.

SQL Server 2005 Try and Catch Exception Handling

I'm pretty excited to see that there is some real error handling for T-SQL code in SQL Server 2005. It's pretty painful to have your wonderfully architected .NET solution tainted by less-than-VBScript error handling for stored procedures in the database. The big difference being the addition of TRY..CATCH blocks. Let's take a look:

reader.getordinal("column_may_not_exist") how to catch the exception?



would any body please help me to catch the exception if the column doesnot exist as my table columns are not static.

sometimes its throwing me indexoutofrange exception as the column doesnot exist

thanks for the help guys

Multiple Paramatized Threads



I have a  method that calls two subsequent methods that contain multiple parameters. I would like to run these methods simultaneously and then preform an action based on the return of both methods, so The parent thread cannot continue until BOTH threads have completed. I have tried going trough MSDN examples and haven't got anything to work (the issue is that the parent thread (aka the main method) continues on once one of the thread completes). I have tried cheking the state of threads and waiting the threads, but have not gotten anywhere. Any help would be great. Thanks.

WebControls.TableRow throws exception on Add()


I have the following method to strip hidden and user-specified columns from a gridviewrow and return a tablerow. 

    Private Shared Function StripHiddenColumns(ByVal gvRow As GridViewRow, ByVal ColumnsToExclude() As Integer) As TableRow

        Dim row As New TableRow
        Dim i As Integer = 0
            For Each cell As TableCell In gvRow.Cells
                If cell.Visible Then
                    If Not ColumnsToExclude.Contains(i) Then
                    End If
                End If
                i += 1

            Return row
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw ex
        End Try
    End Function

However, when I run this code and hit the Add method for the TableRow,  I get an InvalidOperationException stating the Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.  I've gotten this exception before, but usually it's because I'm attempting to modify a table that is databound.  This particular one is not, i am creating it.  Can anyone offer any insight? 

Thanks in advance.
