The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Creates a new instance of the FileFormatException class with a source URI value and an exception type.

Namespace:   System.IO
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

new : 
        sourceUri:Uri *
        innerException:Exception -> FileFormatException


Type: System.Uri

The Uri value of the file that caused this error.

Type: System.Exception

The value of the InnerException property, which represents the cause of the current exception.

This constructor initializes the Message property of the new instance to a system-supplied message that describes the error and includes the file name, such as "The file 'sourceUri' does not conform to the expected file format specification." This message takes into account the current system culture.

The SourceUri property is initialized using the sourceUri parameter.
