Marshal.WriteInt64 Method (Object, Int32, Int64)

Writes a 64-bit signed integer value to unmanaged memory.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static void WriteInt64(
	Object ptr,
	int ofs,
	long val
)

Parameters

ptr
Type: System.Object

The base address in unmanaged memory of the target object.

ofs
Type: System.Int32

An additional byte offset, added to the ptr parameter before writing.

val
Type: System.Int64

The value to write.

ExceptionCondition
AccessViolationException

Base address (ptr) plus offset byte (ofs) produces a null or invalid address.

ArgumentException

ptr is an ArrayWithOffset object. This method does not accept ArrayWithOffset parameters.

WriteInt64 enables direct interaction with an unmanaged 64-bit signed array, eliminating the expense of copying an entire unmanaged array (using Marshal.Copy) to a separate managed array before setting its element values.

Writing to unaligned memory locations is supported.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
