C# Throwing Exceptions Manually

  • Until now the all exceptions were generated/throwing automatically by the run-time system because by default the C# compiler C.L.R throws or generated different types of run-time exceptions automatically.
  • In C# we can throw the different exceptions manually by using a keyword throw.
  • Since all exceptions are built-in in C# and these exceptions are classes which is indirectly derived from its base class which is the Exception class, so an object of an exception class must be created in order to throw it manually by throw clause/keyword. Remember the throw clause must throws an object of that exception and it cannot throw just a type or its reference variable.
  • The built-in exception classes define its different versions of overloaded constructors.
  • When we throw the exception objects then that objects are instance of that exception types or classes.


using System;
namespace csharpAdvance
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // try block declaration.
                Console.WriteLine("Before throw clause.");

                // Throw an object of an exception IndexOutOfRangeException manually by “throw” clause.
                throw new IndexOutOfRangeException("IndexOutOfRangeException is thrown manually..!");

            // An IndexOutOfRangeException is being handled by catch statement.
            catch (IndexOutOfRangeException ex)
            Console.WriteLine("End of try{} and catch{} blocks.");
    /*  The Output will be:
        Before throw clause.
        IndexOutOfRangeException is thrown manually..!
        End of try{} and catch{} blocks.
