[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public ref class SystemException : Exception

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodSystemException()

Initializes a new instance of the SystemException class.

System_CAPS_protmethodSystemException(SerializationInfo^, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the SystemException class with serialized data.

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystemException(String^)

Initializes a new instance of the SystemException class with a specified error message.

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystemException(String^, Exception^)

Initializes a new instance of the SystemException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyData

Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHelpLink

Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHResult

Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInnerException

Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyMessage

Gets a message that describes the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySource

Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStackTrace

Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetSite

Gets the method that throws the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object^)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBaseException()

When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetObjectData(SerializationInfo^, StreamingContext)

When overridden in a derived class, sets the SerializationInfo with information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

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.)

This class is provided as a means to differentiate between system exceptions and application exceptions. It is the base class of such exceptions as ArgumentException, FormatException, and InvalidOperationException.

System_CAPS_importantImportant

Because SystemException serves as the base class of a variety of exception types, your code should not throw a SystemException exception, nor should it attempt to handle a SystemException exception unless you intend to re-throw the original exception.

SystemException uses the HRESULT COR_E_SYSTEM, that has the value 0x80131501.
