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

public ArrayTypeMismatchException(
	string message


Type: System.String

A String that describes the error.

The content of the message parameter is intended to be understood by humans. The caller of this constructor is required to ensure that this string has been localized for the current system culture.

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




A null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The error message string.

The following example demonstrates the ArrayTypeMismatchException(String) constructor of the ArrayTypeMismatchException class. It contains a function which takes two arrays as arguments and checks whether the two arrays are of the same type. If the arrays are of different types, a new ArrayTypeMismatchException is thrown and then caught in the calling method.

using System;

public class ArrayTypeMisMatchConst
   public void CopyArray(Array myArray,Array myArray1)
      string typeArray1 = myArray.GetType().ToString();
      string typeArray2 = myArray1.GetType().ToString();
      // Check whether the two arrays are of same type or not. 
         // Copies the values from one array to another.
         myArray.SetValue("Name: "+myArray1.GetValue(0),0);
         myArray.SetValue("Name: "+myArray1.GetValue(1),1);
          // Throw an exception of type 'ArrayTypeMismatchException' with a message string as parameter. 
         throw new ArrayTypeMismatchException("The Source and destination arrays are not of same type.");

   static void Main()
         string[] myStringArray = new string[2];
         int[] myIntArray = new int[2];
         ArrayTypeMisMatchConst myArrayType = new ArrayTypeMisMatchConst();
      catch(ArrayTypeMismatchException e)
         Console.WriteLine("The Exception Message is : " + e.Message);
