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

public override string Message { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The error message string.

Implements

_Exception.Message

If the class name is not specified when the object is constructed, the default text string inherited from the base class is returned.

This property overrides Message. The error message should be localized.

The following example demonstrates the Message property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MissingMethodException class.

try
{
    // Attempt to call a static DoSomething method defined in the App class. 
    // However, because the App class does not define this method, 
    // a MissingMethodException is thrown. 
    typeof(App).InvokeMember("DoSomething", BindingFlags.Static |
        BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, null, null);
}
catch (MissingMethodException e)
{
    // Show the user that the DoSomething method cannot be called.
    Console.WriteLine("Unable to call the DoSomething method: {0}", e.Message);
}
