Data Validation and Exceptions in C#

      No Comments on Data Validation and Exceptions in C#

The setName funcion demostrates simple data validation on the argument value.

void setName(string value)
{
    // validate empty
    if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(value))
    {
        throw new ArgumentNullException("Please enter a value");
    }

    // validate length
    if (value.Length > 10)
    {
        throw new ArgumentException("The value is too long");
    }

    // value is valid
    MessageBox.Show("The value is valid");
}

When calling the setName function it is important that we implement code to catch any exceptions

try
{
    setName(textBox1.Text);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    MessageBox.Show("Error " + ex.Message);
}
