    Array of ScreenCharacter on the host screen.
    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 the same as that of ScreenCharacter objects. In DBCS, the two numbers can be different. If the last byte is only half of a DBCS character, the last byte is not returned.
