System.Object
  System.Exception
    System.SystemException
      System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException
        More...

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

[<SerializableAttribute>]
[<ComVisibleAttribute(true)>]
type ExternalException =  
    class
        inherit SystemException
    end

The ExternalException type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkExternalException()Initializes a new instance of the ExternalException class with default properties.
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkExternalException(String)Initializes a new instance of the ExternalException class with a specified error message.
Protected methodExternalException(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)Initializes a new instance of the ExternalException class from serialization data.
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkExternalException(String, Exception)Initializes a new instance of the ExternalException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.
Public methodExternalException(String, Int32)Initializes a new instance of the ExternalException class with a specified error message and the HRESULT of the error.

  NameDescription
Public propertyDataGets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkErrorCodeGets the HRESULT of the error.
Public propertyHelpLinkGets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Protected propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkHResultGets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkInnerExceptionGets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkMessageGets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySourceGets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkStackTraceGets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyTargetSiteGets the method that throws the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetBaseExceptionWhen overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetObjectDataWhen overridden in a derived class, sets the SerializationInfo with information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetTypeGets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)

In XNA Framework 3.0, this member is inherited from Object.GetType().
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkToStringReturns a string that contains the HRESULT of the error. (Overrides Exception.ToString().)

In XNA Framework, this member is overridden by ToString().

  NameDescription
Protected eventSerializeObjectStateOccurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

To enhance interoperability between legacy systems and the common language runtime, the ErrorCode property stores an integer value (HRESULT) that identifies the error. User defined exceptions should never derive from ExternalException, and an ExternalException should never be thrown by user code. Use the specific exceptions that derive from ExternalException instead.

ExternalException uses the HRESULT E_FAIL which has the value 0x80004005.

ExternalException uses the default Equals implementation, which supports reference equality.

For a list of initial values for an instance of ExternalException, see the ExternalException constructors.
