MissingMemberException.Message Property

Gets the text string showing the class name, the member name, and the signature of the missing member.

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

public override string Message { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The error message string.

Implements

_Exception.Message

If the class name is not specified when the object is constructed, the default text string inherited from the base class is returned.

This property overrides Message. The error message should be localized.

This property is read-only.

The following example demonstrates the Message property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MissingMemberException class.

try
{
    // Attempt to access a static AnotherField field defined in the App class. 
    // However, because the App class does not define this field, 
    // a MissingFieldException is thrown. 
    typeof(App).InvokeMember("AnotherField", BindingFlags.Static |
        BindingFlags.GetField, null, null, null);
}
catch (MissingMemberException e)
{
 // Notice that this code is catching MissingMemberException which is the 
 // base class of MissingMethodException and MissingFieldException. 
 // Show the user that the AnotherField field cannot be accessed.
 Console.WriteLine("Unable to access the AnotherField field: {0}", e.Message);
}
