Remarks

Basic error message is identified by LocationContractErrorMessage and obtained from the provider set in LocalizedTextProvider.

All formatting strings have the following parameters replaced:

  • {0} is replaced by the location name.
  • {1} is replaced by the location kind.
  • {2} is replaced by a string containing both location kind and name.
  • {3} is replaced by the value which caused the error when being assigned to the location.
  • Further parameters are described in the remarks sections of contracts which override the GetErrorMessageArguments() method.

Note that an array of error message arguments is cached for each location.
