Normally a compilation error is generated if code attempts to access a nonexistent member of a class. MissingFieldException is designed to handle cases where an attempt is made to dynamically access a renamed or deleted field of an assembly that is not referenced by its strong name. The MissingFieldException is thrown when code in a dependent assembly attempts to access a missing field in an assembly that was modified.

MissingFieldException uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGFIELD, that has the value 0x80131511.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of MissingFieldException, see the MissingFieldException constructors.
