The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Represents the method that will handle the Error event of a FileSystemWatcher object.

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

public delegate void ErrorEventHandler(
	Object^ sender,
	ErrorEventArgs^ e


Type: System::Object^

The source of the event.

Type: System.IO::ErrorEventArgs^

An ErrorEventArgs object that contains the event data.

When you create an ErrorEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event-handling method, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event-handling method is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example shows how to create a FileSystemWatcher object to monitor file changes (creates, deletes, renames, changes) occurring on a disk drive. The example also shows how to properly receive error notifications.
