[SerializableAttribute]
public ref class InsufficientMemoryException sealed : OutOfMemoryException

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodInsufficientMemoryException()

Initializes a new instance of the InsufficientMemoryException class with a system-supplied message that describes the error.

System_CAPS_pubmethodInsufficientMemoryException(String^)

Initializes a new instance of the InsufficientMemoryException class with a specified message that describes the error.

System_CAPS_pubmethodInsufficientMemoryException(String^, Exception^)

Initializes a new instance of the InsufficientMemoryException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyData

Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHelpLink

Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHResult

Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInnerException

Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyMessage

Gets a message that describes the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySource

Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStackTrace

Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetSite

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object^)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBaseException()

When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetObjectData(SerializationInfo^, StreamingContext)

When overridden in a derived class, sets the SerializationInfo with information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

Unlike OutOfMemoryException, InsufficientMemoryException is thrown before starting an operation, and thus does not imply state corruption. An application can catch this exception, throttle back its memory usage, and avoid actual out of memory conditions and their potential for corrupting program state.

This exception is thrown by the MemoryFailPoint constructor when you specify a projected memory allocation larger than the amount of currently available memory. Your program can catch the exception and either delay the task that needs the memory or execute it in smaller steps that require less memory.

See the MemoryFailPoint class for a code example.

System_CAPS_noteNote

This exception is not included in the .NET for Windows Store apps or the Portable Class Library, but it is thrown by some members that are. To catch the exception in that case, write a catch statement for OutOfMemoryException instead.
