ArgumentOutOfRangeException is thrown when a method is invoked and at least one of the arguments passed to the method is not Nothing and does not contain a valid value.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException is used extensively by:

ArgumentOutOfRangeException behaves identically to ArgumentException. It is provided so that application code can differentiate between exceptions caused by invalid arguments that are not Nothing, and exceptions caused by null arguments. For errors caused by null arguments, see ArgumentNullException.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of ArgumentOutOfRangeException, see the ArgumentOutOfRangeException constructors.

The following example defines a class to contain information about an invited guest. If the guest is younger than 21, an ArgumentOutOfRangeException exception is thrown.



Module Example

   Public Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      Dim guest1 As Guest = New Guest("Ben", "Miller", 17)
      outputBlock.Text &= guest1.GuestInfo & vbCrLf
   End Sub

   Class Guest

      Private FirstName As String
      Private LastName As String

      Private Age As Integer

      Public Sub New(ByVal fName As String, ByVal lName As String, ByVal age As Integer)
         MyBase.New()
         FirstName = fName
         LastName = lName
         If (age < 21) Then
            Throw New ArgumentOutOfRangeException("age", "All guests must be 21-years-old or older.")
         Else
            age = age
         End If
      End Sub

      Public Function GuestInfo() As String
         Dim gInfo As String = (FirstName + (" " _
            + (Me.LastName + (", " + Me.Age.ToString))))
         Return gInfo
      End Function
   End Class

End Module
