AbandonedMutexException Constructor (String, Exception, Int32, WaitHandle)

Initializes a new instance of the AbandonedMutexException class with a specified error message, the inner exception, the index for the abandoned mutex, if applicable, and a Mutex object that represents the mutex.

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

public AbandonedMutexException(
	string message,
	Exception inner,
	int location,
	WaitHandle handle


Type: System.String
An error message that explains the reason for the exception.
Type: System.Exception
The exception that is the cause of the current exception. If the inner parameter is not null, the current exception is raised in a catch block that handles the inner exception.
Type: System.Int32
The index of the abandoned mutex in the array of wait handles if the exception is thrown for the WaitHandle.WaitAny method, or –1 if the exception is thrown for the WaitHandle.WaitOne or WaitAll methods.
Type: System.Threading.WaitHandle
A Mutex object that represents the abandoned mutex.

The content of message is a text string intended to inform the user about the exception. The caller of this constructor is required to ensure that this string has been localized for the current system culture.

An exception that is thrown as a direct result of a previous exception should include a reference to the previous exception in the InnerException property. The InnerException property returns the same value that is passed into the constructor, or null if the InnerException property does not supply the inner exception value to the constructor.

The following table shows the initial property values for an instance of AbandonedMutexException initialized with this constructor.
