App->halt() in Slim 3.x

Hi Guys,

in my v2 app i was using $app->halt(500, "error") in multiple places to stop the app if something went wrong. With a hook i was able then to log the message i was sending in $app->halt() and the status code was set correctly.
I am upgrading to v3 currently and the upgrade guide said that i should use $response->withStatus(500, "error") instead of $app->halt(500, "error").
The problem is, that $response->withStatus(500) is not stopping the app and if i am using it inside a class (not in the route directly) i only get an Internal Server Error instead of my custom message.

Someone got a tip for me how to replace $app->halt() properly in v3?

    Throw an exception and write your own errorHandler.

    Is there no simpler way than having to write my own errorHandler.

    You can just return a response with your desired status code and content.
