The exception that is thrown when there is an attempt to dynamically access a class member that does not exist.
See Also: MissingMemberException Members
Normally a compilation error is generated if the code attempts to access a nonexistent member of a class. MissingMemberException is designed to handle cases where a field or a method is deleted or renamed in one assembly and the change is not reflected in a second assembly. At runtime, MissingMemberException will be thrown when the code in the second assembly attempts to access the missing member in the first assembly.
MissingMemberException is the base class for MissingFieldException and MissingMethodException. In general it is better to use one of the derived classes of MissingMemberException to more precisely indicate the exact nature of the error. Throw a MissingMemberException if you are only interested in capturing the general case of a missing member error.
MissingMemberException uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGMEMBER, that has the value 0x80131512.
