The following code example demonstrates the TypeLoadException(String) constructor. It contains a method that generates a TypeLoadException with a custom message, and displays the error message to the console.

using System;

public class TypeLoadException_Constructor2
{
   public static void Main() 
   {
      Console.WriteLine("This program throws an exception upon successful run.");
      Console.WriteLine("Generating TypeLoadException with custom message...");
      try 
      {
         // Generate a new instance of TypeLoadException.
         TypeLoadExceptionDemoClass.GenerateException();
      }  
      catch (TypeLoadException e)
      {
         Console.WriteLine ("TypeLoadException: \n\tError Message = " + e.Message);
      }
      catch (Exception e)
      {
         Console.WriteLine ("Exception: \n\tError Message = " + e.Message);
      }
   }
}

class TypeLoadExceptionDemoClass
{ 
   public static bool GenerateException() 
   {
      // Throw a TypeLoadException with custom defined message. 
      throw new TypeLoadException("This is a custom generated TypeLoadException error message");
   }
}
