When you have multiple exception types that you handle the same way, you must either duplicate the exception logic in every block OR create a method to handle the exception(s).

Thanks for your suggestion.

The current behavior is by design. If you want to filter your exceptions programmatically, and handle them similarly, I suggest that you catch Exception itself and put all the logic in the body of that catch clause.

Thanks again,
