FileNotFoundException Constructor (String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the FileNotFoundException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

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

public FileNotFoundException(
	string message,
	Exception innerException
)

Parameters

message
Type: System.String
A description of the error. The content of message is intended to be understood by humans. The caller of this constructor is required to ensure that this string has been localized for the current system culture.
innerException
Type: System.Exception
The exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the innerException parameter is not null, the current exception is raised in a catch block that handles the inner exception.

An exception that is thrown as a direct result of a previous exception should include a reference to the previous exception in the InnerException property. The InnerException property returns the same value that is passed into the constructor, or null if the InnerException property does not supply the inner exception value to the constructor.

The following table shows the initial property values for an instance of FileNotFoundException.
