Error handling (try catch)


Hi everyone!
Is there any way to catch or detect access violation error?
construction like

  1. QString *str;
  2. try{
  3.     str.clear();
  4. }
  5. catch(...){
  6.     ...
  7. }

should throw error, but it doesn’t.

The access violation error isn’t thrown (exceptions are thrown not errors) – it occurs when you access memory that you don’t own.

Anyway you can initialize your pointers with 0 (null pointer) and then first check for 0 and only then call a member-function (to be a little more safer you can assign 0 to the pointer after you delete it then you detect the attempt to call function after the pointer is deleted)
