public MembershipCreateUserException(
	string message,
	Exception innerException


Type: System.String

A description of the reason for the exception.

Type: System.Exception

The exception that caused the MembershipCreateUserException.

An instance of the MembershipCreateUserException class is thrown by the Membership.CreateUser method when the user is not created.

You can use this overload of the MembershipCreateUserException constructor to supply information regarding a caught exception that occurred while the user was being created.

The following code example calls the CreateUser method to create a new membership user. If the user creation fails, a MembershipCreateUserException is thrown. If the exception is not a MembershipCreateUserException, the caught exception is supplied as the InnerException of the MembershipCreateUserException that is thrown.

public MembershipUser MyCreateUser(string username, string password, string email)
  MembershipUser u = null;

    u = Membership.CreateUser(username, password, email);
  catch (MembershipCreateUserException e)
    throw e;
  catch (Exception e)
    throw new MembershipCreateUserException("An exception occurred creating the user.", e);

  return u;
