ObjectDisposedException Class

The exception that is thrown when an operation is performed on a disposed object.

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

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public class ObjectDisposedException : InvalidOperationException
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class ObjectDisposedException extends InvalidOperationException
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public class ObjectDisposedException extends InvalidOperationException

The following example demonstrates an error that causes the ObjectDisposedException exception to be thrown.

using System;
using System.IO;

public class ObjectDisposedExceptionTest 
{
   public static void Main()
   {     
      MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(16);
      ms.Close();
      try 
      {
         ms.ReadByte();
      } 
      catch (ObjectDisposedException e) 
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Caught: {0}", e.Message);
      }
   }
}

import System.*;  
import System.IO.*;

public class ObjectDisposedExceptionTest
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(16);
        ms.Close();
        try {
            ms.ReadByte();
        }
        catch (ObjectDisposedException e) {
            Console.WriteLine("Caught: {0}", e.get_Message());
        }
    } //main
} //ObjectDisposedExceptionTest

This code produces the following output:

Caught:
  Cannot access a closed Stream.

System.Object
   System.Exception
     System.SystemException
       System.InvalidOperationException
        System.ObjectDisposedException
