String Constructor (Char*)

Initializes a new instance of the String class to the value indicated by a specified pointer to an array of Unicode characters.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public String(
	char* value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Char*
A pointer to a null-terminated array of Unicode characters.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The current process does not have read access to all the addressed characters.

ArgumentException

value specifies an array that contains an invalid Unicode character, or value specifies an address less than 64000.

If value is a null pointer, an Empty instance is initialized.

This constructor copies the sequence of Unicode characters at the specified pointer until a null character (hexadecimal 0x0000) is reached.

If the specified array is not null-terminated, the behavior of this constructor is system dependent. For example, such a situation might cause an access violation.

In C#, this constructor is defined only in the context of unsafe code.
