SecurityException Constructor (String, Exception)

Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.

Initializes a new instance of the SecurityException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that caused this exception.

Namespace:  System.Security
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

    Exception inner


  • message
    Type: System.String
    The error message that explains the reason for the exception.
  • inner
    Type: System.Exception
    The exception that caused the current exception. If the inner parameter is not nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the current exception is raised in a catch block that handles the inner exception.


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