<cftry>

Used with one or more <cfcatch> tags, the cftry tag lets you catch and process exceptions in CFML pages.

Exceptions include events that disrupt the normal flow of instructions in a CFML page, such as failed database operations, missing include files, and developer-specified events.

This tag must have a body.

This tag is also supported within <cfscript>

This tag does not use any attributes.

<cftry><!--- body ---></cftry>

<cftry>
  <cfquery name="getCountofReminders" datasource="dsn">
    select count(id) from reminders where id = <cfqueryparam value="#arguments.id#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_number">
  </cfquery>
  <cfcatch type="database">
    <cfoutput>
      <p>There was a problem getting a count of your reminders)</p>
    </cfoutput>
    <cfdump var=#cfcatch#>
  </cfcatch>
</cftry>
