Hello,

I implement following code to make add-in for ArcMap.

After user inputs from 'newform' window, geoprocessors do their job.

But when I run this code, ArcMap just crashed without any message or report.

I tried to debug it, but it's just same. Crashed. I checked debug setting, it was fine, exactly same as ESRI's instruction on web resource.

I will add more code after this, but crashing without any report like this, I cannot do programing?


It would be helpful if I know

1) why does current code make crash?

2) how can I debug add-in and find what is a problem, not just crash without any clue?


Thanks

Not sure where to begin. You have a lot to learn about writing good code. In general it is poor design to put a large script inside the onclick event of a button.
You make use of some try blocks which is good but maybe just wrap the whole thing in a try block and report the error in a message box so you know what the problem is.
It doesn't look like runConvexPath() is ever called. Therefore you have never created the geoprocessor object before you start using it in your onclick event. Don't instantiate these objects in runConvexPath(), just create them where you need them.

Hi. Thank you for comment.

Originally, I wrote code as separated classes. But it crashed. When I tried to same code in current shape, strangely it worked. I don't know why. It supposed to be run well, because I implemented simple one geoprocessing, and that code just copy-paste from sample code! This is first time I ever use C# .net, so I don't know much. So I tried to follow examples, but it seems to me much of them not work well.

Now I can catch errors with try blocks (Thanks!). But I still don't get it why does it make error....

Original code was implemented in simple console application for my research. Now I want to implement it as Add-in, but my code does not work at all in Add-In project.
