It's been a while since I've done any CastleOS scripting, but I'm pretty sure that I used to be able to use Try/Catch statements for error handling (and getting useful debugging info). But in the latest Core Service betas, Try/Catch doesn't seem to work anymore; if there's any error in a script, it just silently fails.

For example, this simple test script:

using System;
using CastleOSCoreService;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Net;

public class TestScript
{
public void Main(string[] args)
{
try
{
ThisIsNotARealFunction();

}
catch (Exception e)
{
File.WriteAllText("C:\\ScriptError.txt", e.ToString());
}
}
}


Should throw a NullRef exception to the text file, but nothing is output. Did something change? Is there a better way to catch script errors?

(I also tried outputting errors to the System EventLog, but same lack of results now.)

That would be working, if it's not, then it's not catching the error and the "silent fail" is likely down the chain. You can also use the built in scripting LogError method to write errors to the CastleOS error log.

Also, keep in mind you can now write C# plugins too, which may be a better avenue than scripts for many things.
