invalid_argument Class

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017, see Visual Studio 2017 Documentation.

The class serves as the base class for all exceptions thrown to report an invalid argument.

class invalid_argument : public logic_error {  
public:  
    explicit invalid_argument(const string& message);

    explicit invalid_argument(const char *message);

};  

The value returned by what is a copy of message.data.

// invalid_arg.cpp  
// compile with: /EHsc /GR  
#include <bitset>  
#include <iostream>  
  
using namespace std;  
  
int main( )  
{  
   try   
   {  
      bitset< 32 > bitset( string( "11001010101100001b100101010110000") );  
   }  
   catch ( exception &e )   
   {  
      cerr << "Caught " << e.what( ) << endl;  
      cerr << "Type " << typeid( e ).name( ) << endl;  
   };  
}
