Exception Constructor (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

 

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

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

new : 
        info:SerializationInfo *
        context:StreamingContext -> Exception

Parameters

info
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo

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

context
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.StreamingContext

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

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The info parameter is null.

SerializationException

The class name is null or HResult is zero (0).

This constructor is called during deserialization to reconstitute the exception object transmitted over a stream. For more information, see XML and SOAP Serialization.

The following code example defines a derived serializable Exception class. The code forces a divide-by-0 error and then creates an instance of the derived exception using the (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext) constructor. The code serializes the instance to a file, deserializes the file into a new exception, which it throws, and then catches and displays the exception's data.
