ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

constructor is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

An element of arguments is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

The length of arguments does match the number of parameters for the constructor that constructor represents.

-or-

The Type property of an element of arguments is not assignable to the type of the corresponding parameter of the constructor that constructor represents.

The arguments parameter must contain the same number of elements as the number of parameters for the constructor represented by constructor. If arguments is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), it is considered empty, and the Arguments property of the resulting NewExpression is an empty collection.

The Type property of the resulting NewExpression represents the declaring type of the constructor represented by constructor. The Members property is an empty collection.
