TypeLoadException Constructor (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

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

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

protected TypeLoadException(
	SerializationInfo info,
	StreamingContext context
)

Parameters

info
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo

The object that holds the serialized object data.

context
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.StreamingContext

The contextual information about the source or destination.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The info object is null.

This constructor is called during deserialization to reconstitute the exception object transmitted over a stream. For more information, see XML and SOAP Serialization.

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.
