PHP Question

Exception not catching in try/catch block

Is there any reason why a try/catch block will not work?

I am calling a method in the Magento2 API inside a try catch block but it doesn't catch the exception and execution stops and I see stack trace.

Here is my code:

$productModel = $this->productRepository->getById( $pId );

$debpt = "";
try{
$debpt = $productModel->getCustomAttribute('depart_num')->getValue();
}
catch(\Exception $ex){
$debpt = $ex->getMessage();
}


The
getValue()
method causes the exception but my try/catch doesn't catch it.

Here is the stacktrace:

( ! ) Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getValue() on null in /var/www/nwl/app/code/Raleigh/CustomReports/Controller/Report/Generate.php on line 118
( ! ) Error: Call to a member function getValue() on null in /var/www/nwl/app/code/Raleigh/CustomReports/Controller/Report/Generate.php on line 118

I am at a loss here how to tackle this. The API class doesn't have any method to check for a value to avoid the null error and my try/catch block just doesn't work.

Any one know why the try/catch might not be working?

The code is not throwing an Exception, it's showing a Fatal Error, that's why you can't catch it.

You can for instance check if $productModel->getCustomAttribute('depart_num') is null first

if ($productModel->getCustomAttribute('depart_num') !== null) { // do your logic
