SerializationException Constructor (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the SerializationException class from serialized data.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Serialization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

new : 
        info:SerializationInfo * 
        context:StreamingContext -> SerializationException


Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo
The serialization information object holding the serialized object data in the name-value form.
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.StreamingContext
The contextual information about the source or destination of the exception.


The info parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The current constructor is called during deserialization to reconstitute the exception object transmitted over a stream. (For more information on serialization see [<topic://cpconSerialization>].)
