StackTrace in VB.Net
Stack Trace is a string that describes the contents of the call stack, with the most recent method call appearing first.
This is most commontly used to know the place of code that generated an exception
Dim iVar As Long
iVar = "Assign String"
Catch ex As Exception
The above example shows the stacktrace in message box when the type mismatch exception is thrown
The execution stack keeps track of all the methods that are in execution at a given instant. A trace of the method calls is called a stack trace. The stack trace listing provides a means to follow the call sequence to the line number in the method where the exception occurs.
StackTrace may not report as many method calls as expected, due to code transformations, such as inlining, that occur during optimization.
The StackTrace property is overridden in classes that require control over the stack trace content or format. By default, the stack trace is captured immediately before an exception object is thrown. Use Environment.StackTrace to get stack trace information when no exception is being thrown as shown below:
The trace output is shown below:
