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

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

public SystemException(
	string message,
	Exception innerException
)

Parameters

message
Type: System.String

The error message that explains the reason for the exception.

innerException
Type: System.Exception

The exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the innerException parameter is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), 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 can 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 a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) 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 SystemException.
