ArgumentOutOfRangeException is thrown when a method is invoked and at least one of the arguments passed to the method is not nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) and does not contain a valid value.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException is used extensively by:

ArgumentOutOfRangeException behaves identically to ArgumentException. It is provided so that application code can differentiate between exceptions caused by invalid arguments that are not nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), and exceptions caused by null arguments. For errors caused by null arguments, see ArgumentNullException.

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

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