Exception handling for Addins

  • 50
    Points

  • There should be a default exception handler for Addins.
    Currently if an unhandled exception escapes the addin developer's code, the addin will crash ArcMap.
    ArcMap should run all Addin code within an exception handler to protect addin users.

While yes, a developer should throughly test code, I've yet to be able to find every way ESRI ArcObjects can crash (which they do in surpsing ways sometimes). If there was a way in an extension, or even in the ESRI Addin configuration to try and handle these before crashing arc map would be most helpful!
