C# Question

Do I have to break after throwing exception?

I'm writing a custom class in C# and I'm throwing a couple exceptions if people give the wrong inputs in some of the methods. If the exception is thrown, will any of the code in the method after the throw still be executed? Do I have to put a break after the throw, or does a throw always quit the method?

When you throw an exception, the next code to get executed is any catch block that covers that throw within the method (if any) then, the finally block (if any). You can have a try, a try-catch, a try-catch-finally or a try-finally. Then, if the exception is not handled, re-thrown by a catch block or not caught at all, control is returned to the caller. For example, you will get "Yes1, Yes2, Yes3" from this code ...

try
{
    Console.WriteLine("Yes1");
    throw (new Exception());
    Console.WriteLine("No1");

}
catch
{
    Console.WriteLine("Yes2");
    throw;
    Console.WriteLine("No2");
}
finally
{
    Console.WriteLine("Yes3");
}

Console.WriteLine("No3");
