ArrayTypeMismatchException Constructor (String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the ArrayTypeMismatchException 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 ArrayTypeMismatchException(
	string message,
	Exception innerException


Type: System.String

The error message that explains the reason for the exception.

Type: System.Exception

The exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the innerException parameter is not a null reference, 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 should 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 ArrayTypeMismatchException.




The inner exception reference.


The error message string.

The following code example demonstrates the ArrayTypeMismatchException constructor of the ArrayTypeMismatchException class. It contains a function that takes two arrays as arguments and checks whether the two arrays are of the same type. If the arrays are of different types, a new ArrayTypeMismatchException is thrown and then caught in the calling method.

using System;

public class ArrayTypeMisMatchConst
   public void CopyArray(Array myArray,Array myArray1)
         // Copies the value of one array into another array.
      catch(Exception e)
         // Throw an exception of with a message and innerexception. 
         throw new ArrayTypeMismatchException("The Source and destination arrays are of not same type.", e);

   static void Main()
            string[] myStringArray = new string[2];
            int[] myIntArray = new int[2];
            ArrayTypeMisMatchConst myArrayType = new ArrayTypeMisMatchConst();
         catch(ArrayTypeMismatchException e)
            Console.WriteLine("The Exception Message is : "+e.Message);
            Console.WriteLine("The Inner exception is :"+e.InnerException);
