C# Equivalent to VB6 Error Handling

VB allows VB6-style error handling for compatibility purposes.  Some elements of VB6 error handling can be converted to try/catch blocks.  Items that cannot be converted and must be addressed via refactoring are: On Error Resume Next, Resume, Resume Next, On Error GoTo -1, and references to the Err object.

For the simplest case, the conversion is trivial:

VB (with VB6 error handling):

Public Sub ErrorHandlingExample()
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    '... <main logic>
ErrorHandler:
    '... <error handling code>
End Sub

C#:

public void ErrorHandlingExample()
{
    try
    {
        // On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
        //... <main logic>
    }
    catch
    {
        //... <error handling code>
    }
}
