This class is a wrapper for the ArgumentException class. It provides additional information through its implementation of the IContainsErrorRecord interface.

Although cmdlets might need to catch this exception, instances of this exception class are usually generated by the Windows PowerShell runtime. It is unusual for code outside the Windows PowerShell runtime to create an instance of this class.

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