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

[ConditionalAttribute("CONTRACTS_FULL")]
public static void EnsuresOnThrow<TException>(
	bool condition
)
where TException : Exception

Type Parameters

TException

The type of exception that invokes the postcondition check.

Parameters

condition
Type: System.Boolean
The conditional expression to test.

The condition parameter specifies a postcondition that is expected to be true when the enclosing method or property terminates abnormally and an exception of type TException is thrown.

  • This method call must be at the beginning of a method or property, before any other code.

  • This contract is exposed to clients; therefore, it must only reference members that are at least as visible as the enclosing method.

  • You must use the binary rewriter for run-time enforcement of this postcondition.
