Get Exception without being in catch block

In .NET, when exception is thrown, the exception passed though the call stacks. While debugging you may not be inside the catch block (may be in finally) or you may not have catch block at all. But if you want to still see what exception occurred then just go to 'watch' window in visual studio and type '$exception' and you will get the exception as it is.

Happy Debugging!

ps: I got this trick free from my ex-colleague Manish

Good, I know this tricks are known only to professional debugger (who spends most of his life in debugging rather than coding)
