Property Value

An Object that contains the value of the parameter that caused the current Exception.

Use this property to retrieve the invalid argument.

The ActualValue property returns the same value that was passed to the constructor, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if no value was supplied.

The ActualValue property is assigned a value at the time of object construction. If the ActualValue property value is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), a string representation of the value is appended to the message string held by the Message property.

The ActualValue property is not used within the .NET Framework class library. It carries a null value in all the ArgumentOutOfRangeException objects thrown by the .NET Framework class library. The ActualValue property is provided so that applications can use the available argument value.

This property is read-only and should be overridden only to customize the content or format of the value.
