Examples

The following code example demonstrates the DecoderExceptionFallback and DecoderFallbackException classes.

// This example demonstrates the DecoderExceptionFallback class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;

    // Create an encoding, which is equivalent to calling the
    // ASCIIEncoding class constructor.
    // The DecoderExceptionFallback parameter specifies that an exception
    // is thrown if a character cannot be encoded.
    // An encoder exception fallback is also specified, but in this code
    // example the encoding operation cannot fail.
