AmbiguousMatchException Class

The exception that is thrown when binding to a member results in more than one member matching the binding criteria. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Reflection
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public sealed class AmbiguousMatchException : SystemException

AmbiguousMatchException uses the HRESULT COR_E_AMBIGUOUSMATCH which has the value 0x8000211D.

An AmbiguousMatchException is thrown when a member is invoked late-bound and multiple overloads satisfy the binding criteria, or when more than one member matches the binding criteria passed to a reflection method that can return only a single result (for example, System.Type.GetMethod or System.Type.GetProperty).
