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.)

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.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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