    Default Detect loading of ImageIcon from URL?

    I'm pretty new to java, I'm trying to detect if an image gets loaded or not, don't know how to do that. I thought by catching the url command it would do it but if you link to an image that doesn't exist it doesn't throw and exception. How can I either detect if url was correct or if icon exists? Thanks

    Java Code:
           where = new URL("");
    ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon(where);

    ImageIcon doesn't tell you if an image file could not be found or if image data is corrupt or unreadable. It does have a method getImageLoadStatus which you can use to investigate loading problems/success. methods throw exceptions.
