Exception.GetObjectData Method

When overridden in a derived class, sets the SerializationInfo with information about the exception.

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

abstract GetObjectData : 
        info:SerializationInfo * 
        context:StreamingContext -> unit  
override GetObjectData : 
        info:SerializationInfo * 
        context:StreamingContext -> unit

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.

Implements

ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)
_Exception.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

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 example defines a derived serializable Exception class that implements GetObjectData, which makes minor changes to two properties and then calls the base class to perform the serialization. The example forces a divide-by-0 error and then creates an instance of the derived exception. 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.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
