FormatException

FormatException


The exception that is thrown when the format of an argument does not meet the parameter specifications of the invoked method.


Remarks

FormatException is thrown when the format of an argument in a method invocation does not match the format of the corresponding formal parameter type. For example, if a method specifies a String parameter consisting of two digits with an embedded period, passing a corresponding string argument containing only two digits to that method would cause FormatException to be thrown.
