System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_proteventSerializeObjectState

Occurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

ArithmeticException is the base class for the following exceptions:

Your code should not handle or throw this exception. Instead, you should either handle or throw one of its derived classes, since it more precisely indicates the exact nature of the error.

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

ArithmeticException uses the HRESULT COR_E_ARITHMETIC, which has the value 0x80070216.
