Gets a value indicating which error occurred during an asynchronous operation.

Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

member Error : Exception with get

Property Value

Type: System.Exception

An Exception instance, if an error occurred during an asynchronous operation; otherwise null.

If an exception is raised during an asynchronous operation, the class will assign the exception to the Error property. The client application's event-handler delegate should check the Error property before accessing any properties in a class derived from AsyncCompletedEventArgs; otherwise, the property will raise a TargetInvocationException with its InnerException property holding a reference to Error.

The value of the Error property is null if the operation was canceled.

Notes to Inheritors:

If you provide read-only properties in a derived class, be sure to call the RaiseExceptionIfNecessary method in your property implementation. This prevents clients from accessing properties that are potentially not valid due to a failure in the asynchronous operation.

The following code example demonstrates using an AsyncOperation to track the lifetime of asynchronous operations. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the System.ComponentModel.AsyncOperationManager class.
