The error message string.

This property overrides Message. The error message should be localized.

This property is read-only.

The following example demonstrates the Message property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MissingMemberException class.

      ' Attempt to access a static AnotherField field defined in the Example class.
      ' However, because the Example class does not define this field, 
      ' a MissingFieldException is thrown.
      GetType(Example).InvokeMember("AnotherField", BindingFlags.Static Or BindingFlags.GetField, _
                                 Nothing, Nothing, Nothing)
   Catch e As MissingMemberException
      ' Notice that this code is catching MissingMemberException which is the  
      ' base class of MissingMethodException and MissingFieldException.
      ' Show the user that the AnotherField field cannot be accessed.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Unable to access the AnotherField field: {0}", e.Message) & vbCrLf
   End Try
End Sub
