The exception that is thrown when the execution stack overflows because it contains too many nested method calls. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Initializes a new instance of the Message property of the new instance to a system-supplied message that describes the error, such as "The requested operation caused a stack overflow." This message takes into account the current system culture.class, setting the
Initializes a new instance of theclass with a specified error message.
Initializes a new instance of theclass with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.
Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)
Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.(Inherited from Exception.)
Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.(Inherited from Exception.)
Gets a message that describes the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)
Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.(Inherited from Exception.)

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)
Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)
is thrown for execution stack overflow errors, typically in case of a very deep or unbounded recursion.
In the .NET Framework 1.0 and 1.1, you could catch a Execute method do not exceed a maximum defined by the MAX_RECURSIVE_CALLS constant.object (for example, to recover from unbounded recursion). Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, you can’t catch a object with a try/catch block, and the corresponding process is terminated by default. Consequently, you should write your code to detect and prevent a stack overflow. For example, if your app depends on recursion, use a counter or a state condition to terminate the recursive loop. The following example uses a counter to ensure that the number of recursive calls to the
Applying the HandleProcessCorruptedStateExceptionsAttribute attribute to a method that throws a has no effect. You still cannot handle the exception from user code.
If your app hosts the common language runtime (CLR), it can specify that the CLR should unload the application domain where the stack overflow exception occurs and let the corresponding process continue. For more information, see ICLRPolicyManager Interface.
