Throw Activity


Throws an exception.

Inheritance Hierarchy:



Alerts the system of a user defined error.

In a Workflow:

Throw could be used within a workflow to indicate that a problematic condition has occurred. For example, if a user specifies an input value that is illegal in an application, then the part of the workflow that handles validation of user input could identify this value as illegal (possibly using an If activity) and throw an exception using the Throw Activity.
