InsufficientMemoryException InsufficientMemoryException InsufficientMemoryException InsufficientMemoryException Class

Definition

The exception that is thrown when a check for sufficient available memory fails. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class InsufficientMemoryException sealed : OutOfMemoryException
[Serializable]
public sealed class InsufficientMemoryException : OutOfMemoryException
type InsufficientMemoryException = class
    inherit OutOfMemoryException
Public NotInheritable Class InsufficientMemoryException
Inherits OutOfMemoryException

Attributes
SerializableAttribute

Remarks

Unlike OutOfMemoryException, InsufficientMemoryException is thrown before starting an operation, and thus does not imply state corruption. An application can catch this exception, throttle back its memory usage, and avoid actual out of memory conditions and their potential for corrupting program state.

This exception is thrown by the MemoryFailPoint constructor when you specify a projected memory allocation larger than the amount of currently available memory. Your program can catch the exception and either delay the task that needs the memory or execute it in smaller steps that require less memory.

See the MemoryFailPoint class for a code example.

Note

This exception is not included in the .NET for Windows Store apps or the Portable Class Library, but it is thrown by some members that are. To catch the exception in that case, write a catch statement for OutOfMemoryException instead.

Constructors

InsufficientMemoryException() InsufficientMemoryException() InsufficientMemoryException() InsufficientMemoryException()

Initializes a new instance of the InsufficientMemoryException class with a system-supplied message that describes the error.
