Error handling in Server-Side Blazor
Developers building Blazor applications should be aware of how the framework deals with exceptions, and what steps to take in order to maximize reliability and to detect and diagnose errors.
To recap, server-side Blazor is a stateful framework. For as long as users are interacting with your application, they maintain a connection to the server known as a circuit. The circuit holds all the active component instances, plus many other aspects of state such as the components' most recent render output and the current set of event-handling delegates that could be triggered by client-side events. If a user opens your application in multiple browser tabs, then they have multiple independent circuits.
As a high-level principle, Blazor treats most unhandled exceptions as fatal to that circuit. If a circuit is terminated due to an unhandled exception, the user can only continue by reloading the page to create a new circuit and starting again, although other circuits (e.g., th
