NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodIOException()

Initializes a new instance of the IOException class with its message string set to the empty string (""), its HRESULT set to COR_E_IO, and its inner exception set to a null reference.

System_CAPS_protmethodIOException(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Initializes a new instance of the IOException class with the specified serialization and context information.

System_CAPS_pubmethodIOException(String)

Initializes a new instance of the IOException class with its message string set to message, its HRESULT set to COR_E_IO, and its inner exception set to null.

System_CAPS_pubmethodIOException(String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the IOException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

System_CAPS_pubmethodIOException(String, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the IOException class with its message string set to message and its HRESULT user-defined.

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(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)

When overridden in a derived class, sets the SerializationInfo with information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_proteventSerializeObjectState

Occurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

IOException is the base class for exceptions thrown while accessing information using streams, files and directories.

The Base Class Library includes the following types, each of which is a derived class of IOException :

Where appropriate, use these types instead of IOException.

IOException uses the HRESULT COR_E_IO which has the value 0x80131620.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the FileStream.Lock method.
