Marshal.GetExceptionPointers Method

Retrieves a computer-independent description of an exception, and information about the state that existed for the thread when the exception occurred.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public static IntPtr GetExceptionPointers()

Return Value

Type: System.IntPtr
An IntPtr to an EXCEPTION_POINTERS structure.

GetExceptionPointers is exposed for compiler support of structured exception handling (SEH) only.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
