EncoderFallbackException Class

 

The exception that is thrown when an encoder fallback operation fails. This class cannot be inherited.

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

System.Object
  System.Exception
    System.SystemException
      System.ArgumentException
        System.Text.EncoderFallbackException

[SerializableAttribute]
public sealed class EncoderFallbackException : ArgumentException

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEncoderFallbackException()

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderFallbackException class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEncoderFallbackException(String)

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderFallbackException class. A parameter specifies the error message.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEncoderFallbackException(String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderFallbackException class. Parameters specify the error message and the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyCharUnknown

Gets the input character that caused the exception.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyCharUnknownHigh

Gets the high component character of the surrogate pair that caused the exception.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyCharUnknownLow

Gets the low component character of the surrogate pair that caused the exception.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyData

Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHelpLink

Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHResult

Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIndex

Gets the index position in the input buffer of the character that caused the exception.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInnerException

Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyMessage

Gets the error message and the parameter name, or only the error message if no parameter name is set.(Inherited from ArgumentException.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyParamName

Gets the name of the parameter that causes this exception.(Inherited from ArgumentException.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertySource

Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStackTrace

Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTargetSite

Gets the method that throws the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBaseException()

When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Sets the SerializationInfo object with the parameter name and additional exception information.(Inherited from ArgumentException.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsUnknownSurrogate()

Indicates whether the input that caused the exception is a surrogate pair.

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

The following code example demonstrates the EncoderExceptionFallback and EncoderFallbackException classes.

// This example demonstrates the EncoderExceptionFallback class.

using System;
using System.Text;

class Sample 
{
    public static void Main() 
    {

// Create an encoding, which is equivalent to calling the 
// ASCIIEncoding class constructor. 
// The EncoderExceptionFallback parameter causes an exception to
// be thrown when a character cannot be encoded. 
// A decoder exception fallback is also specified, but it is not 
// used because this example terminates during the encoding operation.  

    Encoding ae = Encoding.GetEncoding(
                  "us-ascii",
                  new EncoderExceptionFallback(), 
                  new DecoderExceptionFallback());

// The input string consists of the Unicode characters LEFT POINTING 
// DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK (U+00AB), 'X' (U+0058), and RIGHT POINTING 
// DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK (U+00BB). 
// The encoding can only encode characters in the US-ASCII range of U+0000 
// through U+007F. Consequently, the characters bracketing the 'X' character
// cause an exception.
    string inputString = "\u00abX\u00bb";

    string twoNewLines = "\n\n";
    byte[] encodedBytes = new byte[ae.GetMaxByteCount(inputString.Length)];
    int numberOfEncodedBytes = 0;

// --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Console.Clear();

// Display the name of the encoding.
    Console.WriteLine("The name of the encoding is \"{0}\".\n", ae.WebName);

// Display the input string in text.
    Console.WriteLine("Input string ({0} characters): \"{1}\"", 
                       inputString.Length, inputString);

// Display the input string in hexadecimal.
    Console.Write("Input string in hexadecimal: ");
    foreach (char c in inputString.ToCharArray()) {
        Console.Write("0x{0:X2} ", (int)c);}
    Console.Write(twoNewLines);

// --------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Attempt to encode the input string. However, an exception is thrown before
// the input string can be encoded.

    Console.WriteLine("Encode the input string...");

// The code example terminates during the call to the GetBytes() method.
    try {
        numberOfEncodedBytes = ae.GetBytes(inputString, 0, inputString.Length, 
                                           encodedBytes, 0);
        }
    catch (EncoderFallbackException e)
        {
        Console.WriteLine(e);
        Console.WriteLine("\n*** THE CODE EXAMPLE TERMINATES HERE AS INTENDED. ***");
        return;
        }

// This statement is never executed.
    Console.WriteLine("This statement is never executed.");
    }
}
