MissingFieldException Class

 

The exception that is thrown when there is an attempt to dynamically access a field that does not exist. If a field in a class library has been removed or renamed, recompile any assemblies that reference that library.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodMissingFieldException()

Initializes a new instance of the MissingFieldException class.

System_CAPS_protmethodMissingFieldException(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the MissingFieldException class with serialized data.

System_CAPS_pubmethodMissingFieldException(String)

Initializes a new instance of the MissingFieldException class with a specified error message.

System_CAPS_pubmethodMissingFieldException(String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the MissingFieldException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

System_CAPS_pubmethodMissingFieldException(String, String)

Initializes a new instance of the MissingFieldException class with the specified class name and field name.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyData

Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHelpLink

Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHResult

Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInnerException

Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyMessage

Gets the text string showing the signature of the missing field, the class name, and the field name. This property is read-only.(Overrides MissingMemberException.Message.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySource

Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStackTrace

Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetSite

Gets the method that throws the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBaseException()

When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Sets the SerializationInfo object with the class name, the member name, the signature of the missing member, and additional exception information.(Inherited from MissingMemberException.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protfieldClassName

Holds the class name of the missing member.(Inherited from MissingMemberException.)

System_CAPS_protfieldMemberName

Holds the name of the missing member.(Inherited from MissingMemberException.)

System_CAPS_protfieldSignature

Holds the signature of the missing member.(Inherited from MissingMemberException.)

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.)

Normally a compilation error is generated if code attempts to access a nonexistent member of a class. MissingFieldException is designed to handle cases where an attempt is made to dynamically access a renamed or deleted field of an assembly that is not referenced by its strong name. The MissingFieldException is thrown when code in a dependent assembly attempts to access a missing field in an assembly that was modified.

MissingFieldException uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGFIELD, that has the value 0x80131511.

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

This example shows what happens if you attempt to use reflection to call a method that does not exist and access a field that does not exist. The application recovers by catching the MissingMethodException, MissingFieldException, and MissingMemberException.
