TypeInitializationException Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the TypeInitializationException class with the default error message, the specified type name, and a reference to the inner exception that is the root cause of this exception.

[Visual Basic]
Public Sub New( _
   ByVal fullTypeName As String, _
   ByVal innerException As Exception _
public TypeInitializationException(
   string fullTypeName,
 Exception innerException
public: TypeInitializationException(
   String* fullTypeName,
 Exception* innerException
public function TypeInitializationException(
   fullTypeName : String,
 innerException : Exception


The fully qualified name of the type that fails to initialize.
The exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the innerException parameter is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the current exception is raised in a catch block that handles the inner exception.


An exception that is thrown as a direct result of a previous exception can include a reference to the previous exception in the InnerException property. The InnerException property returns the same value that is passed into the constructor, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the InnerException property does not supply the inner exception value to the constructor.

The following table shows the initial property values for an instance of TypeInitializationException.

Property Value
InnerException The inner exception reference.
Message The localized error message string.
TypeName The name of the type.
