SecurityException.FailedAssemblyInfo Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets information about the failed assembly.

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

public AssemblyName FailedAssemblyInfo { get; set; }
/** @property */
public AssemblyName get_FailedAssemblyInfo ()

/** @property */
public void set_FailedAssemblyInfo (AssemblyName value)

public function get FailedAssemblyInfo () : AssemblyName

public function set FailedAssemblyInfo (value : AssemblyName)

Property Value

An AssemblyName that identifies the failed assembly.

This property contains an AssemblyName object that identifies the assembly that caused the security check to fail.


This property is not populated when a security exception occurs in a Deny or PermitOnly stack frame, because the assembly issuing the Deny or PermitOnly security action is not the assembly that failed the stack walk. In these cases, the security exception is created with a constructor that does not require an assembly name, granted set information, or refused set information.

The following code example shows the use of the FailedAssemblyInfo property to display the information about the failed assembly. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SecurityException class.
