  • innerException
    Type: System..::.Exception

An exception that is thrown as a direct result of a previous exception should include a reference to the previous exception in the InnerException property. The InnerException property returns the same value that is passed into the constructor, or nullNothingnullptra null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the InnerException property does not supply the inner exception value to the constructor.
