How it works

CrashReporter.NET uses the exception information like stack trace, exception type, message, source, .NET CLR version, OS version and application version to generate the crash report and send it to developer using email. It uses DoctorDump service (http://drdump.com) to send email to developer. Developers can use their SMTP server to send email too.

Using the code

Windows Forms Application

First thing you need to do is subscribe to Application.ThreadException and AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException in your Program.cs file as shown below.

internal static class Program
{
    /// <summary>
    ///     The main entry point for the application.
    /// </summary>
    [STAThread]
    private static void Main()
    {
        Application.ThreadException += ApplicationThreadException;

        AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += CurrentDomainOnUnhandledException;

        Application.EnableVisualStyles();
        Application.SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(false);
        Application.Run(new FormMain());
    }

    private static void CurrentDomainOnUnhandledException(object sender, UnhandledExceptionEventArgs unhandledExceptionEventArgs)
    {
        SendReport((Exception)unhandledExceptionEventArgs.ExceptionObject);
        Environment.Exit(0);
    }

    private static void ApplicationThreadException(object sender, ThreadExceptionEventArgs e)
    {
        SendReport(e.Exception);
    }

    public static void SendReport(Exception exception,  string developerMessage = "")
    {
        var reportCrash = new ReportCrash("Email where you want to receive crash reports.")
        {
            DeveloperMessage = developerMessage
        };

        reportCrash.Send(exception);
    }
}

Just set the ToEmail in above example with your email to start receiving crash reports.

If you want to handle exception report for individual exception with special message you can do it like shown below.

const string path = "test.txt";
try
{
    if (!File.Exists(path))
    {
        throw new FileNotFoundException(
            "File Not found when trying to write argument exception to the file", argumentException);
    }
}
catch (Exception exception)
{
    Program.SendReport(exception, "Value of path variable is " + path);
}

WPF Application

First thing you need to do is subscribe to AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException in your App.xaml.cs file as shown below.

public partial class App : Application
{
    protected override void OnStartup(StartupEventArgs e)
    {
        base.OnStartup(e);
        AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += CurrentDomainOnUnhandledException;
        Application.Current.DispatcherUnhandledException += DispatcherOnUnhandledException;
        TaskScheduler.UnobservedTaskException += TaskSchedulerOnUnobservedTaskException;
    }

    private void TaskSchedulerOnUnobservedTaskException(object sender, UnobservedTaskExceptionEventArgs unobservedTaskExceptionEventArgs)
    {
        SendReport(unobservedTaskExceptionEventArgs.Exception);
        Environment.Exit(0);
    }

    private void DispatcherOnUnhandledException(object sender, DispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventArgs dispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventArgs)
    {
        SendReport(dispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventArgs.Exception);
        Environment.Exit(0);
    }

    private static void CurrentDomainOnUnhandledException(object sender, UnhandledExceptionEventArgs unhandledExceptionEventArgs)
    {
        SendReport((Exception)unhandledExceptionEventArgs.ExceptionObject);
        Environment.Exit(0);
    }

    public static void SendReport(Exception exception, string developerMessage = "")
    {
        var reportCrash = new ReportCrash("Email where you want to receive crash reports.")
        {
            DeveloperMessage = developerMessage
        };
        reportCrash.Send(exception);
    }
}

Just set the ToEmail in above example with your email to start receiving crash reports.

If you want to handle exception report for individual exception with special message you can do it like shown below.

const string path = "test.txt";
try
{
    if (!File.Exists(path))
    {
        throw new FileNotFoundException(
            "File Not found when trying to write argument exception to the file", argumentException);
    }
}
catch (Exception exception)
{
    App.SendReport(exception, "Value of path variable is " + path);
}

Configuration Options

Send reports Silently

You can send crash reports silently by setting Silent property to true.

reportCrash.Silent = true;

Send reports to your DrDump account

You can send crash report to you doctor dump account by adding following line in ReportCrash method of Program.cs file.

reportCrash.DoctorDumpSettings = new DoctorDumpSettings
{
    ApplicationID = new Guid("Application ID you received from DrDump.com"),
};

Just set the ApplicationID to ID you received from DrDump.com.

Capture whole screen instead of Application screen

You can take screenshot of whole screen instead of only application when application crashes by adding following line in ReportCrash method of Program.cs file.

reportCrash.CaptureScreen = true;
