The exception that is thrown when there is an attempt to dynamically access a class member that does not exist.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|MissingMemberException()||Initializes a new instance of the class.|
|MissingMemberException(String)||Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified error message.|
|MissingMemberException(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)||Initializes a new instance of the class with serialized data.|
|MissingMemberException(String, Exception)||Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the root cause of this exception.|
|MissingMemberException(String, String)||Initializes a new instance of the class with the specified class name and member name.|
|Data||Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|HelpLink||Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|HResult||Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|InnerException||Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Message||Gets the text string showing the class name, the member name, and the signature of the missing member. (Overrides Exception.Message.)|
In XNA Framework 3.0, this member is inherited from Exception.Message.
|Source||Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|StackTrace||Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|TargetSite||Gets the method that throws the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetBaseException||When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetObjectData||Sets the SerializationInfo object with the class name, the member name, the signature of the missing member, and additional exception information. (Overrides Exception.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext).)|
|GetType||Gets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)|
In XNA Framework 3.0, this member is inherited from Object.GetType().
In Portable Class Library Portable Class Library, this member is inherited from Object.GetType().
In .NET for Windows Store apps Windows 8, this member is inherited from Object.GetType().
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
Normally a compilation error is generated if the code attempts to access a nonexistent member of a class. is designed to handle cases where a field or a method is deleted or renamed in one assembly and the change is not reflected in a second assembly. At runtime, will be thrown when the code in the second assembly attempts to access the missing member in the first assembly.
is the base class for MissingFieldException and MissingMethodException. In general it is better to use one of the derived classes of to more precisely indicate the exact nature of the error. Throw a if you are only interested in capturing the general case of a missing member error.
uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGMEMBER, that has the value 0x80131512.

This example shows what happens if you attempt to use reflection to call a method that does not exist and access a field that does not exist. The application recovers by catching the MissingMethodException, MissingFieldException, and .
