.NET Exceptions (all of them)

The surce code for generating the list of .NET exceptions that I posted earlier. Here it is finally. This just outputs an XML structure to the console. You can redirect the output to a file then use an XSLT transform on it (or do whatever else you want with it).

using System;using System.Collections.Generic;using System.Text;using System.Reflection;using System.Collections;using System.Text.RegularExpressions;using System.Design;using System.Xml;using System.IO;namespace ExceptionList{ class Program { static void Main(string[] args) { ReflectionSearch(".*exception$"); Console.ReadKey(); } static public void ReflectionSearch(string strPattern) { Assembly thisAssembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly(); AssemblyName[] assemblyNames = thisAssembly.GetReferencedAssemblies(); // Force the load of various assemblies LoadAssemblies(); Regex regex = new Regex(@"^(?<path>.*)\.(?<exc>.*?)$", RegexOptions.Compiled | RegexOptions.ExplicitCapture); foreach (var assemblyName in assemblyNames) { // iterate over all of the modules referenced by this assembly Assembly assembly = Assembly.Load(assemblyName); foreach (Module module in assembly.GetModules()) { SortedList<string, string> moduleList = new SortedList<string, string>(); foreach (Type t in module.GetTypes()) { // if there is a class of type Exception in this module // add it to the sorted list if (t.IsSubclassOf(typeof(Exception))) { // the funky key is so that the output will be sorted // the way a human would want it to be moduleList.Add(t.Namespace + ".1" + t.Name, t.FullName); } } // as long as we found some exceptions in this module if (moduleList.Count > 0) { string lastPath = ""; Console.WriteLine(string.Format("<module name=\"{0}\">", module.Name)); // get the XML file containing the XML comments for the .NET objects // As far as I can tell, the 2.0 framework comes with these files // but the 3.0 and 3.5 framework does not. I'm sure the XML files // exist, but I don't have them string xmlFileName = string.Format( @"C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\en\{0}.xml", module.Name.Substring(0, module.Name.Length - 4)); XmlDocument xd = null; if (File.Exists(xmlFileName)) { xd = new XmlDocument(); xd.Load(xmlFileName); } // iterate over each exception in this module foreach (string excName in moduleList.Values) { Match match = regex.Match(excName); if (match.Success) { string path = match.Groups["path"].Value; // keep track of when we're switching to a new module if (path != lastPath) { if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(lastPath)) { Console.WriteLine("</namespace>"); } lastPath = path; Console.WriteLine(string.Format("<namespace name=\"{0}\">", path)); } // get the full class name including the namespace string fullClassName = string.Format("{0}.{1}", path, match.Groups["exc"].Value); Console.WriteLine(string.Format("<exception name=\"{0}\">", fullClassName)); // output the MSDN reference link Console.WriteLine(string.Format( "<a href=\"http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/{0}.aspx\">{1}</a>", fullClassName.ToLower(), match.Groups["exc"].Value)); // if there is XML documentation for this exception // and there is a summary node, write it out if (xd != null) { XmlNode xnd = xd.SelectSingleNode(string.Format("//member[@name='T:{0}']/summary", fullClassName)); if (xnd != null) { Console.WriteLine(string.Format("<summary>{0}</summary>", xnd.InnerText.Trim())); } } Console.WriteLine("</exception>"); } else { Console.WriteLine("Whoops...\t" + excName); } } Console.WriteLine("</module>"); } // end if } // end foreach } // end foreach } private static void LoadAssemblies() { new System.AddIn.Hosting.InvalidPipelineStoreException(); new System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderException(); new System.Configuration.Install.InstallException(); new System.Data.DataException(); new System.Drawing.Color(); new System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor(); new System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry(); new System.Management.ConnectionOptions(); new System.Messaging.AccessControlList(); new System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException(); new System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.SoapFormatter(); new System.Security.HostProtectionException(); new System.ServiceProcess.TimeoutException(); new System.Web.HttpCompileException(); new System.Windows.Forms.Form(); new System.Windows.Forms.Design.AnchorEditor(); new System.Xml.XmlDocument(); } }}

You’ll need to add the following references:

i found the fr 3.0 and 3.5 xml comment files at

C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5


C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0\en

this is where the vs object browser querys the data.
