'Declaration Public Class FaultException _ Inherits CommunicationException
public class FaultException : CommunicationException
The FaultException type exposes the following members.
|FaultException()||Initializes a new instance of the FaultException class.|
|FaultException(MessageFault, String)||Initializes a new instance of the FaultException class using the specified message fault values and the provided action string.|
|FaultException(FaultReason, FaultCode, String)||Initializes a new instance of the FaultException class using the specified reason, fault code, and action value.|
|Action||Gets the value of the SOAP action for the fault message.|
|Code||Gets the fault code for the SOAP fault.|
|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.)|
|InnerException||Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Message||Gets the message for the exception. (Overrides Exception.Message.)|
|Reason||Gets the FaultReason for the SOAP fault.|
|StackTrace||Gets a string representation of the frames on the call stack at the time the current exception was thrown. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|CreateFault(MessageFault, array<Type)||Returns a FaultException object from the specified message fault and an array of detail types.|
|CreateFault(MessageFault, String, array<Type)||Returns a FaultException object from the specified message fault, action, and an array of detail types.|
|CreateMessageFault||Returns an in-memory MessageFault object.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (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 a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|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.)|
In a service, use the FaultException class to create an untyped fault to return to the client for debugging purposes.
In a client, catch FaultException objects to handle unknown or generic faults. Because FaultException extends CommunicationException, remember to catch any FaultException objects prior to catching CommunicationException objects if you want to catch them separately.
In general, it is strongly recommended that you use the FaultContractAttribute to design your services to return strongly typed SOAP faults (and not managed exception objects) for all fault cases in which you decide the client requires fault information. However, use the FaultException in the following situations:
To send SOAP faults from a service for debugging purposes.
To catch SOAP faults on a client when the faults are not part of the service contract.
Throw FaultException objects when you want the string to be passed to the constructor and retrieved by the client by calling the FaultException<TDetail>.ToString method. If you specify a fault contract of type System.ServiceModel.FaultException<TDetail> where one of the parameters is of type System.String, the value of the string is available as the FaultException<TDetail>.Detail property and the FaultException<TDetail>.ToString method need not be called to recover the reason descried in the value.
