CSimpleException Class

This class is a base class for resource-critical MFC exceptions.

class AFX_NOVTABLE CSimpleException : public CException


CSimpleException is the base class for resource-critical MFC exceptions and handles the ownership and initialization of an error message. The following classes use CSimpleException as their base class:

CMemoryException Class Out-of-memory exception
CNotSupportedException Class Requests for an unsupported operation
CResourceException Class Windows resource not found or not creatable
CUserException Class Exception that indicates a resource could not be found
CInvalidArgException Class Exception that indicates an invalid argument

Because CSimpleException is an abstract base class, you cannot declare a CSimpleException object directly. Instead, you must declare derived objects such as those in the previous table. If you are declaring your own derived class, use the previous classes as a model.

For more information, see the CException Class topic and Exception Handling (MFC).
