TypeLoadException Constructor (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the TypeLoadException class with serialized data.

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

	SerializationInfo^ info, 
	StreamingContext context


Type: System.Runtime.Serialization::SerializationInfo
The object that holds the serialized object data.
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization::StreamingContext
The contextual information about the source or destination.


The info object is nullptr.

This constructor is called during deserialization to reconstitute the exception object transmitted over a stream. For more information, see [<topic://cpconSerialization>].

The following example generates an exception, and serializes the exception data to a file, and then reconstitutes the exception. For this code example to run, you must provide the fully qualified assembly name. For information about how to obtain the fully qualified assembly name, see Assembly Names.

#using <System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::Runtime::Serialization;
using namespace System::Runtime::Serialization::Formatters::Soap;
using namespace System::IO;

// This class overrides the GetObjectData method and initializes
// its data with current time. 

public ref class MyTypeLoadExceptionChild: public TypeLoadException
   System::DateTime ErrorDateTime;
      ErrorDateTime = DateTime::Now;

   MyTypeLoadExceptionChild( DateTime myDateTime )
      ErrorDateTime = myDateTime;

   MyTypeLoadExceptionChild( SerializationInfo^ sInfo, StreamingContext * sContext )

      // Reconstitute the deserialized information into the instance.
      ErrorDateTime = sInfo->GetDateTime( "ErrorDate" );

   void GetObjectData( SerializationInfo^ sInfo, StreamingContext * sContext )

      // Add a value to the Serialization information.
      sInfo->AddValue( "ErrorDate", ErrorDateTime );


int main()

   // Load the mscorlib assembly and get a reference to it.
   // You must supply the fully qualified assembly name for mscorlib.dll here.
   Assembly^ myAssembly = Assembly::Load( "Assembly text name, Version, Culture, PublicKeyToken" );
      Console::WriteLine( "Attempting to load a type not present in the assembly 'mscorlib'" );

      // This loading of invalid type raises a TypeLoadException
      Type^ myType = myAssembly->GetType( "System::NonExistentType", true );
   catch ( TypeLoadException^ ) 

      // Serialize the exception to disk and reconstitute it back again.
         System::DateTime ErrorDatetime = DateTime::Now;
         Console::WriteLine( "A TypeLoadException has been raised." );

         // Create MyTypeLoadException instance with current time.
         MyTypeLoadExceptionChild^ myTypeLoadExceptionChild = gcnew MyTypeLoadExceptionChild( ErrorDatetime );
         IFormatter^ myFormatter = gcnew SoapFormatter;
         Stream^ myFileStream = gcnew FileStream( "typeload.xml",FileMode::Create,FileAccess::Write,FileShare::None );
         Console::WriteLine( "Serializing the TypeLoadException with DateTime as {0}", ErrorDatetime );

         // Serialize the MyTypeLoadException instance to a file.
         myFormatter->Serialize( myFileStream, myTypeLoadExceptionChild );
         Console::WriteLine( "Deserializing the Exception." );
         myFileStream = gcnew FileStream( "typeload.xml",FileMode::Open,FileAccess::Read,FileShare::None );

         // Deserialize and reconstitute the instance from file.
         myTypeLoadExceptionChild = safe_cast<MyTypeLoadExceptionChild^>(myFormatter->Deserialize( myFileStream ));
         Console::WriteLine( "Deserialized exception has ErrorDateTime = {0}", myTypeLoadExceptionChild->ErrorDateTime );
      catch ( Exception^ e ) 
         Console::WriteLine( "Exception : {0}", e->Message );

   catch ( Exception^ e ) 
      Console::WriteLine( "Exception : {0}", e->Message );
