C# – Another “finally” trivia

If a function implementation has a try – catch block with a finally clause, then the finally code block is executed in all cases before exiting the function.

For example, in the following case:

int Foo()
          //do stuff here
          if(something_happened == true)
          //do something else
          MessageBox.Show("exiting method")

In the above function, even if the function exits at the first ‘if’ condition, the message will still be displayed.
