System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException This exception is thrown if the row or column parameters are outside the range of valid values: (1 to Rows) or (1 to Columns).
The length argument specifies the number of screen bytes to get. In SBCS, the number of screen bytes is equal to the number of ScreenCharacter objects. In DBCS, the two numbers may differ. If the last byte is half of a DBCS character, it is not returned.
