Exception Constructor (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)
Initializes a new instance of the Exception class with serialized data.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo
The SerializationInfo that holds the serialized object data about the exception being thrown.
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 code example defines a derived serializable Exception class. The code forces a divide-by-0 error and then creates an instance of the derived exception using the (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext) constructor. The code serializes the instance to a file, deserializes the file into a new exception, which it throws, and then catches and displays the exception's data.
