Examples

The following code example demonstrates the EncoderExceptionFallback and EncoderFallbackException classes.

// This example demonstrates the EncoderExceptionFallback class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Text;

int main()
{
    // Create an encoding, which is equivalent to calling the
    // ASCIIEncoding class constructor.
    // The EncoderExceptionFallback parameter causes an exception to
    // be thrown when a character cannot be encoded.
    // A decoder exception fallback is also specified, but it is not
    // used because this example terminates during the encoding operation.

    Encoding^ asciiEncoding = Encoding::GetEncoding("us-ascii",
        gcnew EncoderExceptionFallback(), gcnew DecoderExceptionFallback());

    // The input string consists of the Unicode characters LEFT POINTING
    // DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK (U+00AB), 'X' (U+0058), and RIGHT
    // POINTING DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK (U+00BB).
    // The encoding can only encode characters in the US-ASCII range of
    // U+0000 through U+007F. Consequently, the characters bracketing the
    // 'X' character cause an exception.
    String^ inputString = L"\u00abX\u00bb";

    String^ twoNewLines = Environment::NewLine + Environment::NewLine;
    array<Byte>^ encodedBytes = gcnew array<Byte>(
        asciiEncoding->GetMaxByteCount(inputString->Length));
    int numberOfEncodedBytes = 0;

    // ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Console::Clear();

    // Display the name of the encoding.

    }
    Console::Write(twoNewLines);

    // ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    // Attempt to encode the input string. However, an exception is thrown
    // before the input string can be encoded.

    Console::WriteLine("Encode the input string...");

    // The code example terminates during the call to the GetBytes() method.

Constructors

EncoderFallbackException()

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderFallbackException class.

EncoderFallbackException(String)

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderFallbackException class. A parameter specifies the error message.

EncoderFallbackException(String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderFallbackException class. Parameters specify the error message and the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

Properties

CharUnknown

Gets the input character that caused the exception.

CharUnknownHigh

Gets the high component character of the surrogate pair that caused the exception.

CharUnknownLow

Gets the low component character of the surrogate pair that caused the exception.

Data

Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.

(Inherited from Exception)
HResult

Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.

(Inherited from Exception)
HelpLink

Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.

(Inherited from Exception)
Index

Gets the index position in the input buffer of the character that caused the exception.

InnerException

Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception.

(Inherited from Exception)
Message

Gets the error message and the parameter name, or only the error message if no parameter name is set.

(Inherited from ArgumentException)
ParamName

Gets the name of the parameter that causes this exception.

(Inherited from ArgumentException)
Source

Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.

(Inherited from Exception)
StackTrace

Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack.

(Inherited from Exception)
TargetSite

Gets the method that throws the current exception.

(Inherited from Exception)

Methods

Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
GetBaseException()

When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.

(Inherited from Exception)
GetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function.

(Inherited from Object)
GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Sets the SerializationInfo object with the parameter name and additional exception information.

(Inherited from ArgumentException)
GetType()

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Exception)
IsUnknownSurrogate()

Indicates whether the input that caused the exception is a surrogate pair.

MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString()

Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.

(Inherited from Exception)

Events

SerializeObjectState

Occurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception.

(Inherited from Exception)

Applies to
