This exception is raised in certain cases when there is not enough available memory for the requested action.
ErrorNumber As Integer
Used to contain an error number that describes the runtime error.
Message As String
Used to contain descriptive text to display when the runtime exception is encountered.
Constructor(message As String = "", errorCode As Integer = 0)
Constructors are special methods called when you create an object with the New keyword and pass in the parameters above.
Used to raise your own RuntimeException with a message and optional error code.
Stack As String()
Returns a String array that contains a list of all of the methods in the stack from the main entrypoint to the point at which the exception was invoked.
The stack contains all the method names up and including the current method name.
This feature only works if the IncludeFunctionNames property on the App object is selected in the Shared Build Settings.
In addition to your own method calls, you will also see framework method calls, but these may not always be completely accurate due to insufficient symbols for the OS to resolve.
StackFrames As StackFrame()
Returns an array containing the stack when the exception was first raised.
This exception is mostly useful with MemoryBlock and Picture when attempting to allocate large blocks of memory that would exceed the remaining available memory.
Low-level memory situations are inherently problematic, especially if you are frequently requesting small blocks of memory (using MemoryBlock or Picture). Because of this, there is no guarantee that an OutOfMemoryException can even be raised. If the system memory has gotten critically low, the process itself may crash as it attempts to reserve memory in order to display an exception message.
In this situation, you might consider reserving a large block of memory up front and using that within your application rather than repeatedly requesting smaller blocks.
This example uses the Catch statement in a window's Opening event handler to handle out of memory exceptions when trying to draw an imported gif image. The variable myPicture is a global property of type Picture. The picture "Logo" has been added to the Project Editor.
Sub Opening Try myPicture = New Picture(Logo.Width, Logo.Height) myPicture.Graphics.DrawPicture(Logo, 0, 0) Catch err As OutOfMemoryException MessageBox("Insufficient memory to draw the picture!") Quit End Try
