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

public override string Message { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The error message string.

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.

This property is read-only.

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

   // Attempt to access a static AnotherField field defined in the Example class.
   // However, because the Example class does not define this field, 
   // a MissingFieldException is thrown.
   typeof(Example).InvokeMember("AnotherField", BindingFlags.Static |
       BindingFlags.GetField, null, null, null);
catch (MissingMemberException e)
   // Notice that this code is catching MissingMemberException which is the  
   // base class of MissingMethodException and MissingFieldException.
   // Show the user that the AnotherField field cannot be accessed.
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Unable to access the AnotherField field: {0}", e.Message) + "\n";
