ContextMarshalException Class

The exception that is thrown when an attempt to marshal an object across a context boundary fails.


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

public class ContextMarshalException : SystemException

The ContextMarshalException type exposes the following members.

Public methodContextMarshalException()Initializes a new instance of the ContextMarshalException class with default properties.
Public methodContextMarshalException(String)Initializes a new instance of the ContextMarshalException class with a specified error message.
Public methodContextMarshalException(String, Exception)Initializes a new instance of the ContextMarshalException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

Public propertyDataGets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Protected propertyHResultGets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyInnerExceptionGets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyMessageGets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyStackTraceGets a string representation of the frames on the call stack at the time the current exception was thrown. (Inherited from Exception.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetBaseExceptionWhen overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

Objects can marshal by value or by reference. Any attempt to pass a type that cannot be marshaled through a context boundary will result in a ContextMarshalException.

ContextMarshalException uses the HRESULT COR_E_CONTEXTMARSHAL which has the value 0x80131504L.

ContextMarshalException uses the default Equals implementation, which supports reference equality.
