#878 – Unhandled Exceptions in Static Constructors

If any exception is thrown from within a static constructor, a TypeInitializationException will be thrown, with an InnerException set to the original exception that occurred.  If this exception is not caught, the application will be terminated.

    public class Dog
    {
        public static string Motto { get; set; }

        static Dog()
        {
            Motto = "Serve humans and chase balls";
            throw new Exception("Static Dog constructor threw me");
        }
    }
