<SerializableAttribute>
Public Class InternalBufferOverflowException

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodInternalBufferOverflowException()

Initializes a new default instance of the InternalBufferOverflowException class.

System_CAPS_protmethodInternalBufferOverflowException(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Initializes a new, empty instance of the InternalBufferOverflowException class that is serializable using the specified SerializationInfo and StreamingContext objects.

System_CAPS_pubmethodInternalBufferOverflowException(String)

Initializes a new instance of the InternalBufferOverflowException class with the error message to be displayed specified.

System_CAPS_pubmethodInternalBufferOverflowException(String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the InternalBufferOverflowException class with the message to be displayed and the generated inner exception specified.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetSite

Gets the method that throws the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

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

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(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_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_proteventSerializeObjectState

Occurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

In a FileSystemWatcher, when you are notified of file changes, the system stores those changes in a buffer the component creates and passes to the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). If there are many changes in a short time, the buffer can easily overflow, resulting in an exception being thrown, which essentially loses all changes. To keep the buffer from overflowing, use the FileSystemWatcher.NotifyFilter and FileSystemWatcher.IncludeSubdirectories properties to filter out your unwanted change notifications. You can also increase the size of the internal buffer through the FileSystemWatcher.InternalBufferSize property. However, increasing the size of the buffer is expensive, so keep the buffer as small as possible.

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

Imports System.IO

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        ' Create a FileSystemWatcher to monitor all files on drive C.
        Dim fsw As New FileSystemWatcher("C:\")

        ' Watch for changes in LastAccess and LastWrite times, and
        ' the renaming of files or directories. 
        fsw.NotifyFilter = (NotifyFilters.LastAccess Or NotifyFilters.LastWrite _ 
            Or NotifyFilters.FileName Or NotifyFilters.DirectoryName)

        ' Register a handler that gets called when a 
        ' file is created, changed, or deleted.
        AddHandler fsw.Changed, New FileSystemEventHandler(AddressOf OnChanged)

        ' The commented line of code below is a shorthand of the above line.
        ' AddHandler fsw.Changed, AddressOf OnChanged

        ' NOTE: The shorthand version is used in the remainder of this code.
        ' FileSystemEventHandler
        AddHandler fsw.Created, AddressOf OnChanged 
        ' FileSystemEventHandler
        AddHandler fsw.Deleted, AddressOf OnChanged

        ' Register a handler that gets called when a file is renamed.
        ' RenamedEventHandler
        AddHandler fsw.Renamed, AddressOf OnRenamed

        ' Register a handler that gets called if the 
        ' FileSystemWatcher needs to report an error.
        ' ErrorEventHandler
        AddHandler fsw.Error, AddressOf OnError

        ' Begin watching.
        fsw.EnableRaisingEvents = True

        ' Wait for the user to quit the program.
        Console.WriteLine("Press 'Enter' to quit the sample.")
        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub

    ' This method is called when a file is created, changed, or deleted.
    Private Sub OnChanged(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As FileSystemEventArgs)

        ' Show that a file has been created, changed, or deleted.
        Dim wct As WatcherChangeTypes = e.ChangeType
        Console.WriteLine("File {0} {1}", e.FullPath, wct.ToString())
    End Sub

    ' This method is called when a file is renamed.
    Private Sub OnRenamed(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As RenamedEventArgs)

        ' Show that a file has been renamed.
        Dim wct As WatcherChangeTypes = e.ChangeType
        Console.WriteLine("File {0} {2} to {1}", e.OldFullPath, e.FullPath, wct.ToString())
    End Sub

    ' This method is called when the FileSystemWatcher detects an error.
    Private Sub OnError(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As ErrorEventArgs)

        ' Show that an error has been detected.
        Console.WriteLine("The FileSystemWatcher has detected an error")

        ' Give more information if the error is due to an internal buffer overflow.
        If TypeOf e.GetException Is InternalBufferOverflowException Then
            ' This can happen if Windows is reporting many file system events quickly 
            ' and internal buffer of the  FileSystemWatcher is not large enough to handle this
            ' rate of events. The InternalBufferOverflowException error informs the application
            ' that some of the file system events are being lost.
            Console.WriteLine( _
                "The file system watcher experienced an internal buffer overflow: " _
                + e.GetException.Message)
        End If
    End Sub
End Module
