public override string Message { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string containing the error message and the name of the file that caused this exception.



This property overrides Message.

If no message was supplied to the constructor for the current exception, this property returns a system-supplied error message. If the FileName property is not a null reference, the message includes the file name, for example, "Unable to load file a FileName." (a FileName represents the value returned by FileName.) If FileName is null, this is indicated in the system-supplied message as "(null)". The system-supplied message takes into account the current system culture.

This property is read-only.
