Property Value

The formatted, localized text for the message. This includes associated replacement strings.

Exception typeCondition


The space could not be allocated for one of the insertion strings associated with the message.

Getting this property opens the registry to determine the file name of the .dll file that contains the localized text. If you receive a registry error when testing your source code, verify that the .dll file exists on the computer. If insertion strings are included in the message, catch errors in their allocation.
