CryptographicException Constructor (String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the CryptographicException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public CryptographicException(
	string message,
	Exception inner
)

Parameters

message
Type: System.String

The error message that explains the reason for the exception.

inner
Type: System.Exception

The exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the inner parameter is not null, the current exception is raised in a catch block that handles the inner exception.

An exception that is thrown as a direct result of a previous exception should include a reference to the previous exception in the InnerException property. The InnerException property returns the same value that is passed into the constructor, or null if the InnerException property does not supply the inner exception value to the constructor.

The following table shows the initial property values for an instance of CryptographicException.

Property

Value

InnerException

The inner exception reference.

Message

The error message string.

The following code example demonstrates how to construct a CryptographicException using a custom error message and an inner exception. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the CryptographicException class.

string errorMessage = ("The current operation is not supported.");
NullReferenceException nullException = new NullReferenceException();
CryptographicException cryptographicException = 
    new CryptographicException(errorMessage, nullException);
