Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


A TargetException is thrown when an attempt is made to invoke a non-static method on a null object. This may occur because the caller does not have access to the member, or because the target does not define the member, and so on.
