Namespace: System.Security
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override void GetObjectData (
	SerializationInfo info,
	StreamingContext context
public void GetObjectData (
	SerializationInfo info, 
	StreamingContext context
public override function GetObjectData (
	info : SerializationInfo, 
	context : StreamingContext
Not applicable.



The SerializationInfo that holds the serialized object data about the exception being thrown.


The StreamingContext that contains contextual information about the source or destination.

Exception typeCondition


The info parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

GetObjectData sets a SerializationInfo with all the exception object data targeted for serialization. During deserialization, the exception is reconstituted from the SerializationInfo transmitted over the stream.

The following code shows the use of the GetObjectData method to display the permission state contained in the SerializationInfo object. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SecurityException class.

Display("Demonstrating the use of the GetObjectData method.");
SerializationInfo si = new SerializationInfo(
    typeof(EntryPoint), new FormatterConverter());
    new StreamingContext(StreamingContextStates.All));
Display("The FirstPermissionThatFailed from the " +
    "call to GetObjectData is: ");
