Raise Statements

The raise flow control statement will terminate the current scope by raising (or re-raising) an exception. The exception will bubble up the call stack, terminating all execution flow, until it is caught by a try/except block.

The raise keyword can be used in two ways.

Typically, raise is followed by an expression that provides an exception instance. That instance (typically of type Exception or a sub-type, but any Object can be raised, in theory) will travel up the stack, and will be available to all exception handlers, providing details about the exception that occurred.

Inside a try/except block, the raise keyword can be used on its own; it will the re-raise the exception currently being handled.

raise new ArgumentException('Invalid parameter!');
