The exception that is thrown when the value of an argument is outside the allowable range of values as defined by the invoked method.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|ArgumentOutOfRangeException||Initializes a new instance of the class.|
|ArgumentOutOfRangeException(String)||Initializes a new instance of the class with the name of the parameter that causes this exception.|
|ArgumentOutOfRangeException(String, Exception)||Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified error message and the exception that is the cause of this exception.|
|ArgumentOutOfRangeException(String, String)||Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified error message and the name of the parameter that causes this exception.|
|Data||Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|HResult||Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|InnerException||Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Message||Gets the error message and the string representation of the invalid argument value, or only the error message if the argument value is null. (Overrides ArgumentException.Message.)|
In Silverlight for Windows Phone, this member is overridden by Message.
In XNA Framework, this member is overridden by Message.
|StackTrace||Gets a string representation of the frames on the call stack at the time the current exception was thrown. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetBaseException||When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
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.
is used extensively by:
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.

The following example defines a class to contain information about an invited guest. If the guest is younger than 21, an exception is thrown.
To run this example, see Building Examples That Use a Demo Method and a TextBlock Control.
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
