How to suppress PRISM module initialisation errors and continues execution


While in the process of module initialization, if there is any error in a module, then PRISM will throw exception and will stop loading other modules until you fix the error in the module. But if your module is not really important in your application, you would like to suppress this module initialization error and continue loading other modules.

How did I do it:

In such situation you have to handle the ModuleInitializationError by your own. This is achieved by a Custom module initializer that silently logs module initialization errors but continues execution without throwing exceptions further up the call stack.

You will need to inherit ModuleInitializer and override HandleModuleInitializationError and then handle the exception by your own. ModuleInitializer is available in Microsoft.Practices.Prism.Modularity;

public class CustomModuleInitializer : ModuleInitializer  {
        public CustomModuleInitializer(IServiceLocator serviceLocator, ILoggerFacade loggerFacade)
            : base(serviceLocator, loggerFacade) {

        public override void HandleModuleInitializationError(ModuleInfo moduleInfo, string assemblyName, Exception exception) {
            try {
                base.HandleModuleInitializationError(moduleInfo, assemblyName, exception);
            catch (Exception ex) {
//log errors.

And from your bootstrapper, override ConfigureContainer and register this module initializer like as shown below.

protected override void ConfigureContainer()        
// Register custom module initializer that does not stop initializing modules on first error.            
Container.RegisterType<IModuleInitializer, CustomModuleInitializer>();

I have wide range of interests and getting my hands dirty in technology is one among them. I use this platform primarily as my knowledge base. I also use this platform to share my experience and experiments so that it might help someone who is walking the way I already did. The suggestions expressed here are the best to my knowledge at the time of writing and this may not necessarily be the best possible solution. I would pretty much appreciate if you could comment on it to bring into my notice on what could have been done better.
