This class is created whenever the MySql Data Provider encounters an error generated from the server.

Any open connections are not automatically closed when an exception is thrown. If the client application determines that the exception is fatal, it should close any open MySqlDataReader objects or MySqlConnection objects.

The following example generates a MySqlException due to a missing server, and then displays the exception.
public void ShowException()
string mySelectQuery = "SELECT column1 FROM table1";
MySqlConnection myConnection =
new MySqlConnection("Data Source=localhost;Database=Sample;");
MySqlCommand myCommand = new MySqlCommand(mySelectQuery,myConnection);

catch (MySqlException e)
MessageBox.Show( e.Message );
