Implements

_Exception.Message

This property overrides Message.

If no message was supplied to the constructor for the current exception, this property returns a system-supplied error message. If the FileName property is not a null reference, the message includes the file name, for example, "Unable to load file a FileName." (a FileName represents the value returned by FileName.) If FileName is null, this is indicated in the system-supplied message as "(null)". The system-supplied message takes into account the current system culture.

This property is read-only.
