Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualBasic.FileIO
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

public MalformedLineException(
	string message,
	long lineNumber,
	Exception innerException


Type: System.String

The message for the exception.

Type: System.Int64

The line number of the malformed line.

Type: System.Exception

The Exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the InnerException parameter is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the current exception is raised in a catch block that handles the inner exception.

The content of the message parameter is intended to be understood by humans. The caller of this constructor is required to ensure that this string has been localized for the current system culture. The lineNumber parameter initializes the LineNumber property.

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 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 ApplicationException.




The innerException reference.
