ArgumentAssert is a library that simplifies asserting conditions on arguments. If the condition is not met, an ArgumentAssertException is thrown with a description of the failed check. In addition, the Assert() method informs code-analysis that the check must have been true if execution continues.

Run the dotnet command from your project folder to add the ArgumentAssert package:

dotnet add package ArgumentAssert

Sample: Assertion throws exception

The following code asserts the value argument is within the expected range or throws an ArgumentAssertException exception.

int AssertValueIsInRange(int value) {
    ArgumentAssertException.Assert(value is > 0 and < 10);
    return value;

When the assertion fails, the exception message shows the failed expression.

Unhandled exception. System.ArgumentAssertException: value is > 0 and < 10

Sample: Assertion informs code analysis

The following code asserts the value argument is not null and has a length between 1 to 9 characters. Code analysis knows that the pattern is true when Assert() returns successfully. Therefore, there is no warning for the return statement.

string AssertValueIsNotNull(string? value) {
    ArgumentAssertException.Assert(value is { Length: > 0 and < 10 });

    // no warning on the following line
    return value.ToUpper();

When the assertion fails, the exception message shows the failed expression.

Unhandled exception. System.ArgumentAssertException: value is { Length: > 0 and < 10 }

Sample: Streamline calls to Assert()

The following code uses the using static statement to expose the Assert() method without requiring the class name. This approach streamlines the code when many assertions are being performed throughout the codebase.

using static System.ArgumentAssertException;

int AssertValueIsInRange(int value) {
    Assert(value is > 0 and < 10);
    return value;
