Firstly, there is nothing in that code that would make it display an error message even if something did go wrong, so how would you even know? You're catching any exception thrown and then ignoring it so there's every chance something is going wrong. If you're going to catch an exception then you need to actually do something logical with it. Ignoring an exception is logical in some cases but certainly not this one.
