Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

FormatException is thrown when the format of an argument in a method invocation does not match the format of the corresponding formal parameter type. For example, if a method specifies a String parameter consisting of two digits with an embedded period, passing a corresponding string argument containing only two digits to that method would cause FormatException to be thrown.

FormatException uses the HRESULT COR_E_FORMAT, which has the value 0x80131537.

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