    The absolute minimum a new custom exception class needs to have is a name. you need to create a custom exception which is thrown if a login attempt fails. A good name for such an exception would be LoginFailedException. Instead of using the preset exceptions from the System.Exception, you define your OwnException class and inherit Exception or ApplicationException class.

    Creating your own custom exceptions is very easy and allows your code to be more explicit as well as being able to provide more user-friendly error messages. You need to define three constructors in your OwnException Class: One without parameters, other with String parameter for error message and the last one has to have one parameter as a String and other as an Inner exception object.

    class OwnException : ApplicationException
    public OwnException() : base() {}
    public OwnException(string s) : base(s) {}
    public OwnException(string s, Exception ae) : base(s, ae) {}

    Re: How to throw a custom exception in .NET?

    Structured exception handling was introduced to Visual Basic programmers with the first .NET version of the language. Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. Usually the exceptions that occur in the try are caught in the catch block. The finally is used to do all the cleaning up work.
