The following example demonstrates the Message property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MissingMethodException class.

   ' Attempt to call a static DoSomething method defined in the Example class.
   ' However, because the Example class does not define this field, 
   ' a MissingFieldException is thrown.
   GetType(Example).InvokeMember("DoSomething", BindingFlags.Static Or BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, _
                              Nothing, Nothing, Nothing)
Catch e As MissingMethodException
   ' Show the user that the DoSomething method cannot be called.
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Unable to call the DoSomething method: {0}", e.Message) & vbCrLf
End Try
