Exception Handling  in DART language

DART is designed to facilitate handling of error condition using the same mechanism, based on exception, that is employed by java and  C++. A exception is an event that occur during the execution of program.

In order to deal with possible error condition you will normally divide the relevant part of your program into a number of blocks of three different types:

  • Try block

    Try block contain code that forms part of normal operation of your program, but which might encounter some serious error conditions.
  • Catch block

    Catch block are used to handling the exception.
  • Finally block

    It is reside at the end of the try block, and it's executed whether error is occurred or not.

Here, some of common built-in  DART exception:

  • IndexOutOfRangeException:

    If you declare a list of size 4 (four) and wants to access it's fifth (5) element, then it gives IndexOutOfRangeException:5.
  • NoSuchMethodException

          If you want to access that method which is not given in your code, then NoSuchMethodException:method is found :'Method name' exception is occured.

  • NullPointerException

    NullPointerException is occurred, when you gives a null value to any variable and wants to perform some operation by the help of this variable.

Example of exception handling in DART language

void main() {

  var list = [1,2,3,4];

  /**** IndexOutOfRangeException *********/


    print("Out of range execption................");

    print(" ");

    print(list[5]); //Try to access out of range variable.



  catch(IndexOutOfRangeException ex){

    print('The exception is: ${ex}');


  /**** NoSuchMethodException *********/



    print("No such method exception................");


    MethodExcep obj = new MethodExcep();

    obj.IllegalMethod(); // you'r trying to access that method,which is not aviable.


  catch(NoSuchMethodException ex){

    print('The exception is: ${ex}');


  /**** NullPointerException*********/



    print("Null pointer exception................");


    MethodExcep o = new MethodExcep();

    o.a(null,2); // You want to perform operation on null value.


  catch(NullPointerException ex){

    print('The exception is: ${ex}');



    print("All Exception all handled here");



class MethodExcep{

  void Legal(){

    print("I am a legal method");


  a(int a, int b)


    int c=a-b;
