Strange string.Format exception

Hi,

When you execute this line of code
string script = string.Format("foreach (GroupDoc gdoc in
{0}.SetGroup(\"{1}\") {\r\n", "p1", "p2");
You get

System.FormatException was unhandled
Message="Input string was not in a correct format."
Source="mscorlib"
StackTrace:
at System.Text.StringBuilder.FormatError()
at System.Text.StringBuilder.AppendFormat(IFormatProv ider provider,
String format, Object[] args)
at System.String.Format(IFormatProvider provider, String format,
Object[] args)
at System.String.Format(String format, Object arg0, Object arg1)
at ConsoleApplication6.Program.Main(String[] args) in
d:\temp\ConsoleApplication6\Program.cs:line 11
at System.AppDomain.nExecuteAssembly(Assembly assembly, String[]
args)

at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart_Context( Object state)
at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionCon text
executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state)
at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart()

Who can explain why?

Thanks,
Remi

Try doubling the unbalanced brace, as per
