Handle/Display UnhandleException in WPF

From MSDN, unhandledExcpetion can be handled genereally in application.xaml,

  DispatcherUnhandledException="App_DispatcherUnhandledException" />

using System.Windows; // Application
using System.Windows.Threading; // DispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventArgs

namespace SDKSample
    public partial class App : Application
        void App_DispatcherUnhandledException(object sender, DispatcherUnhandledExceptionEventArgs e)
            // Process unhandled exception


            // Prevent default unhandled exception processing
            e.Handled = true;

I like this very much, but suggestion from IglooCoder is, you don’t want set Handled=true, the UnHandleException should keep unhanded in this UnhandledException event, for specific exception you want to handle, do it on screen or somewhere else, like local WcfProxy. This event should be the place you want to display error or log or send screen shot to admin. Anyway, exceptions shouldn’t be handled here.
