Exception.TargetSite Property

Gets the method that throws the current exception.

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

public final function get TargetSite () : MethodBase

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodBase
The MethodBase that threw the current exception.

Implements

_Exception.TargetSite

If the method that throws this exception is not available and the stack trace is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), TargetSite obtains the method from the stack trace. If the stack trace is a null reference, TargetSite also returns a null reference.

NoteNote:

   The TargetSite property may not accurately report the name of the method in which an exception was thrown if the exception handler handles an exception across application domain boundaries.

The following code example throws an Exception and then catches it and displays the originating method using the TargetSite property.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
